Five-star QB Jameis Winston signs with FSU

Get the inside scoop on FSU recruiting. Sign-up for a 7-day free trial

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.- While most college-bound football stars held ceremonies to celebrate their college signings on Wednesday, the nation's top quarterback Jameis Winston was in Austin, Texas taking part in a high school all-star game.

Two days later, he got a chance to have his time in the spotlight.

Winston, the nation's top-ranked quarterback according to Rivals.com, inked his letter of intent with Florida State at the Sports Blast Athletic Complex in Birmingham on Friday afternoon. Winston becomes the 19th signee in FSU's 2012 recruiting class.

"It feels great to be a Seminole," Winston said after signing. "I'm heading to FSU. I knew for a while FSU was where I was going."

The 6-foot-4, 200-pound signal caller picked FSU over Alabama, Stanford and a bevy of other offers. He will have a chance to play both baseball and football for the Seminoles. The opportunity to be a two-sport athlete for elite programs was certainly a big draw for Winston; he is also considered one of the top high school baseball prospects in the country.

Winston was the final piece to the puzzle for FSU's strong 2012 recruiting class and for FSU recruiting coordinator Dameyune Craig, who was one of the main reasons Winston was lured to Tallahassee. Including Winston, Florida State landed three of the top five prospects in the state of Alabama (DE Chris Casher, DT Justin Shanks).

"Wow, the class we are bringing in at FSU is amazing," Winston said. "FSU is my school."

The only hurdle that remains is to find out if the state's No. 1 prospect will head to professional baseball or follow through with his college plans. The MLB draft takes place in June.
