QB commit J.J. Cosentino visits FSU again
By Corey Dowlar
Florida State's 2014 quarterback commitment J.J. Cosentino (Pittsburgh/Central Catholic) just can't help himself.
He likes being in Tallahassee, he likes being around Florida State, and he was back just last week.
The coaches, of course, were happy about that, too.
"It was awesome," he said. "I had a great time.
J.J. Cosentino is rated the No. 9 pocket-passing quarterback prospect in the nation and is the No. 3 overall prospect in the state of Pennsylvania.
"They were excited to have me. We just hung out and talked. I wanted to go down just to get down there again and get comfortable with everything some more."
He didn't waste any time while he was there. Cosentino kept a full schedule checking out the school and other sporting events before hanging out with some of the current players.
"I saw the whole campus again," he said. "We had lunch on campus. On Friday night, we went to the baseball game against Clemson which was awesome. I met a lot of the football players like James Wilder and Jameis Winston. After that, Austin Barron took me back to his house to hang out with some of the guys. It was cool to hang out with the guys and see how they live. Then Saturday morning, I went over to the stadium and hung out with the coaches until noon just chatting and watching some film on other recruits."
The Seminoles newest wide receiver commitment, Markell Pack (Purvis, Miss./Purvis), has Cosentino excited. Perhaps a future pass-catcher, the four-star recruit is someone Cosentino is looking forward to eventually working with.
"I'm pumped," said Cosentino. "I have been talking to him a lot, and the day before he committed I told him about my visit and how the coaches were watching his film while I was there and how much we wanted him."
He wouldn't go as far as claiming responsibility for FSU's good news, but Cosentino joked that he had something to do with it.
"I think so," he said laughing. "I can't take credit for all his recruitment because FSU coaches were on him heavy, but we've been talking for a while and we have a cool relationship."
