It took a little longer than expected, but Rick Leonard (Middletown, Md./Middletown) finally decided to commit to Florida State.

The 6-foot-6, 250-pound defensive end had narrowed his list down to Clemson and Florida State following his camp sessions at each school in July. He originally was going to decide a week or two later, but it was a more difficult choice than he anticipated.

Given his size, it again signals a clear preference in Florida State's defensive line recruiting to target bigger prospects on the edge. And with his frame, it won't be hard for Leonard to put on a lot of weight.
