Florida State received its seventh and eighth commitments from the Class of 2010 on Saturday night when rising high school seniors Terrence Brooks (5-10, 165) of Dunnellon and Corey Miller (6-4, 227) of Byrnes High in Duncan, S.C., told Seminoles coaches they plan to play for FSU.
Brooks, a cornerback, chose the 'Noles over Miami and UCF, among others. And Miller, a defensive end from Byrnes High in Duncan, S.C., selected Florida State over Miami and Clemson, among others.
Both decisions came during FSU's third annual Seminole Showtime camp, which culminated on Saturday night with an event FSU named "camping with the stars." The nighttime session featured appearances and instruction from more than 50 former FSU players, including Derrick Brooks and Chris Weinke.
Miller said the decision to commit to Florida State was an easy one.
"They've been my top school for ever since the recruiting process started - ever since they offered me and everything," he said. "I grew up being a childhood fan of Florida State and for the past couple of weeks, I've been talking to the recruiting class, the people who had already committed I see we've got a good class coming in.
"Big things are going on for Florida State so I want to be a part of it."
Brooks, meanwhile, said he was attracted to FSU because of the great players at his position who have come through here in the past - the likes of Deion Sanders, Terrell Buckley and others.
"Florida State seemed like the best school for me," he said. "I looked at Florida and Miami and all the other in-state schools and this one just seemed the one that's best for me, so I just jumped on it."
Dr. Phillips standout wide receiver Kenny Shaw also attended Seminole Showtime and said afterward that Florida State tops the list of those schools he's considering. Shaw, though, said he likely wouldnt make a final decision until after his high school season ends.
