Jameis Winston signs LOI with FSU 

February, 3, 2012
The nation's No. 1 quarterback, Jameis Winston of Hueytown, Ala., has signed his letter of intent with Florida State and faxed it in.

Winston, 6-foot-4 and 195 pounds, verbally committed to FSU and Jimbo Fisher in early August but didn't sign on Wednesday (national signing day), the first day recruits could sign with Division I schools, because he was in Austin, Texas, at a high school all-star game. He returned home Thursday and put ink to paper on Friday.

Winston never wavered on his pledge to the Seminoles but still made official visits to Alabama, LSU and Stanford. There was much speculation that Alabama could turn him to Tuscaloosa but that all ended after Winston made his official visit to Florida State in the middle of January.
