The Florida State Seminoles didn't land a commitment last weekend during Junior Day, but they certainly made up for it on Saturday when Madison County offensive tackle Zane Herring jumped on board following another visit to FSU.

Herring has been a strong lean to the 'Noles for awhile, but he finally made his commitment on Saturday.

"I love everything about FSU," Herring said earlier. "It's a different feeling when I'm around the players here. Now I've started to build a strong bond with Coach [Randy] Clements -- that's only made my feelings stronger about Florida State."

Herring even reached out to Warchant right after the commitment went down and talked about how he jumped on board with the Seminoles, and what was really the big reason for picking the Noles?

"From the start they always made me a priority. They made me feel like I was the most important player in the world and I always felt at home there. The final piece was getting that connection with Coach Clements. So I went back up to Coach Taggart's office and let him know I'm ready to do something, and committed. He was so excited, "explained Herring.

"I'm going to be working hard on Tate Johnson, and Richie Leonard. I think we have a really good shot at both. I think with Richie he's really starting to feel FSU especially after I told him I committed, "added Herring.

This marks the second straight year that FSU will land a Madison County prospect. Four-star DB Travis Jay was one of the top recruits in the Seminoles' 2019 class.

Herring become the first offensive tackle commitment for FSU's 2020 class, and tackle is always a major priority for the 'Noles.

"The FSU staff has made me a priority from Day One, and they want me to help lead this class," Herring said last week at the Central Florida Rivals c
