FSU Lands 2023 Athlete Cedric Baxter Jr

Florida State added its first 2023 commitment Wednesday when Edgewater athlete Cedric Baxter Jr committed to the Seminoles. We spoke to him about his early commitment to get his thoughts on his decision and to see what’s next over the course of the rest of his time at Edgewater.

Orlando-Edgewater athlete Cedric Baxter Jr has already caught the attention of college coaches throughout the country despite just completing his freshman season. The 6’, 195 pound running back grew up a fan of Florida State, and that offer has held a lot of weight for him since it came in. Wednesday he decided that despite the great offers he had, he wanted to make a commitment to the Seminoles.

“I have offers from Nebraska, Kentucky, UCF, Kansas, Penn State, South Carolina, West Virginia, Georgia Tech, Auburn, Cincinnati and Pitt,” said Baxter Jr. “I grew up a fan of FSU and that is my dream school. I just love the coaches there. Coach Norvell and the coaching staff are really good people and I know it is right for me. It’s been my dream since I was little.”

Even though Baxter Jr has 3 years before he graduates, the coaching staff at FSU has made him a priority already. He said a slew of coaches have done a great job recruiting him which helped make his decision easier.

“Coach David Johnson, Coach Norvell, Coach Dillingham and Coach Marcus Davis have all been recruiting me. Like I said I just love the coaches there and what they do with running backs,” said Baxter Jr.

Cedric says that with his commitment completed he’s going to work on his game and focus on helping Edgewater compete.

“My recruitment is still going to be open but I am committed,” said Baxter Jr. “This past year I learned to be more of a patient runner and now I am looking to keep developing my game. I think I am a very patient back like Le’Veon Bell. That’s who I model my game after. I’m going to work on being the best player I can be and help my team win.”

Stay tuned as we track the next three years of Cedric’s high school career.
