Jordan Young flips commitment, signs with FSU

In the ages of social media and viral videos, it’s hard to go unnoticed by the major recruiting services. However, that’s just what happened to three-star wide receiver Jordan Young until just last month. Now, he’s decided to flip his commitment from Tennessee to Florida State. What a steal.

Young, who becomes the second Tennessee commit to flip to FSU on signing day, was flying under the radar after a monster senior season due to his lack of attendance to recruiting camps over the previous offseason. He was even unranked. Finally, Tennessee and new head coach Jeremy Pruitt extended an offer to Young in the middle of January, and instantly, more schools followed suit.

The Conyers native took an official visit to Knoxville and committed shortly after, wisely securing himself a spot at a good school. However, Willie Taggart and his staff didn’t quit working on him. They had an in-home visit with Young last week where they were able to convince him to schedule an official visit to Tallahassee.

The three-star receiver was impressed on his visit and seemed to fall in love with the school. Young stayed mum on his decision to flip to FSU until today. Now, he’s a Seminole.

There’s no doubt that Taggart just landed one heck of a receiver. Young has great size and speed. He won a state championship as a hurdler and is able to use his athleticism to make acrobatic catches. Young finished his senior season with 66 receptions for 1562 yards and 17 touchdown catches.  

Despite being unranked a month ago from now, the 247 Sports Composite Rankings have Young as the No. 386 overall prospect and the No. 64 wide receiver. The Seminoles have certainly improved their talent at wide receiver with this class, which is exactly what Taggart wanted to do.
