Once he landed his dream offer, Keyshawn Greene wasted little time before making a commitment decision.
Greene — a 2020 inside linebacker out of Wakulla High School — announced his commitment to FSU just two days after he landed his offer from the FSU coaching staff April 12.
“Florida State has been my team ever since I was little,” Greene told the Tallahassee Democrat.
“Coach (Willie) Taggart is a great coach and I am glad he got the head coaching spot.”
Greene — still an unrated recruit — had flown somewhat under the radar as a recruit. FSU was just his third Division-I offer — along with Louisville and Georgia Tech.
It’s hard to believe based on his film, stats and what those who work with him say about him that he will stay unrated for long.
Greene’s commitment continues a recent trend of many of Wakulla’s top recruits making the short trip north to Tallahassee to play for FSU.
Keith Gavin –a four-star wide receiver from Wakulla High in the 2016 recruiting class — signed with FSU after originally committing to Alabama. He had 170 receiving yards as a sophomore in 2017.
However, the more linear comparison for Greene is former FSU and Wakulla linebacker Nigel Bradham.
Bradham — a five-star recruit and the No.1 outside linebacker in the 2008 recruiting class — anchored the FSU defense through the end of the Bobby Bowden era and into the beginning of Jimbo Fisher’s tenure.
