Florida State picked up its seventh commitment towards the Class of 2014 when Delvin Purifoy (Pensacola, Fla./Catholic) chose the Seminoles on Thursday.

Purifoy, who had offers from South Alabama, South Florida and Tennessee, is an ESPN Watch List member as one of the top inside linebackers for the junior class.

"I think overall, it is very close to home and it is a school he has been a fan of for most of his life," Catholic coach Greg Seibert said. "Watching him play over the last couple of years, and looking at the trajectory of where Coach [Jimbo] Fisher has the program headed, it seemed like a place that fit his skill set. He has great size, he runs really well, and that is one of the foundational parts of what Coach Fisher does with that defense. He puts kids on the field that run. His family was completely supportive and it is where he wants to be."
