ESPN 300 ATH commits to Florida State

By Corey Dowlar

ESPN 300 athlete Treon Harris (Miami/Booker T. Washington) is staying in the ACC, but he's leaving his hometown.

The 5-foot-11, 186-pound four-star prospect committed to Florida State over Miami on Monday afternoon, calling the Seminoles' coaching staff to share the news.

"It was a great announcement," he said. "They kind of knew it was coming because I talk to them every day, but they were excited that it came today."

FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher and assistant Tim Brewster were on the other end of the phones. And as excited as Harris was to tell them, they were just as happy to hear it.

"I talked to Coach Jimbo and Coach Brewster," Harris said. "They were very excited. They told me they were very excited to have me. Coach Jimbo is the real deal."

Harris plays quarterback for Washington. At 5-foot-11, he isn't a prototypical quarterback in stature, but he says he doesn't mind that. When the lights come on and he steps between the white lines, being a football player is all that matters.

"They are taking me as a quarterback," he said. "I don't have nothing to prove. It's just football, you know. I will do what I can do."

Harris will be in Tallahassee in about a week's time for the second Jimbo Fisher Summer Camp session.

As for other teams still involved, it appears grim. Harris says he's solid to Florida State.

"I'm locked in," he said.

Harris is the 18th commitment for Florida State in the 2014 class.
