Under Armour All-American running back Ryan Green (St. Petersburg, Fla./St. Pete Catholic) committed to Florida State on Friday night. The 5-foot-10, 195-pound junior is the Seminoles' 12th commitment in the Class of 2013.
Green, who chose Florida State over Auburn, Notre Dame, Florida and Clemson, was originally thinking about waiting until National Signing Day to make his decision, but a second trip to FSU for the Jimbo Fisher Camp proved to be difference.
"I knew this was the place I wanted to be," Green said. "I just felt it and I knew if I didn't commit if was going make things more complicated as other schools kept pursuing me."
Not surprisingly, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher reacted positively when Green gave him news in a phone call.
"He said I would probably hear him screaming from Tallahassee," Green added. "I really enjoyed working with coach Fisher and coach (Eddie) Gran these last couple of days. Coach Gran is going to coach me hard and he has high expectations of his running backs, but he's also going to be a father figure and care about me as a person."
