For the second time this recruiting cycle, new Florida State defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt has flipped a commitment.
This time it is Fairhope, Ala. athlete Nate Andrews. Warchant.com has confirmed that Andrews gave his commitment to the 'Noles on Friday after an in-home visit with Jimbo Fisher on Friday morning.
"It's done," Fairhope High head coach Adam Winegarden told AL.com, which first reported the news of the flip. "He's going to Florida State."
Earlier this month, Pruitt flipped Rivals100 defensive end Demarcus Walker, who is now enrolled at FSU.
Andrews loved everything there was about Minnesota when he took an official visit there earlier this year. Unfortunately for the Gophers, his recruitment changed once the news broke that former Alabama assistant Pruitt was headed to FSU as new defensive coordinator. Pruitt recruited Andrews while at Alabama, but the Tide could not take him as an athlete.
Everything changed once Pruitt became the defensive coordinator at FSU. Andrews immediately set up an official visit and was blown away on that trip and the rest was history from there, as his relationship with Pruitt was just too much to overcome.
Andrews took his official visit to Florida State with his mother last weekend. What really struck him was how comfortable he felt the players, atmosphere and the type of system Pruitt had with his defensive backs, and how Andrews could make an impact as a free safety.
Andrews becomes the 19th commitment in FSU's 2013 class.
