Orlando Timber Creek slot receiver Javonte Seabury has committed to Florida State.
The 5-foot-9, 165-pounder said he mulled his options and just decided FSU was the place for him.
"I committed because I like Florida State and I love the coaches," Seabury said. "It's not too far away and my mom hads a good relationship with Coach [Rick] Tricket and I just like it."
Seabury's commitment now puts the pressure on younger brother and 2015 running back prospect Jacques Patrick, who is ranked by 247sports.com's composite rankings as the No. 15 running back in the country for his class.
The two brothers have often expressed their desire to play together in college.
"I know that it puts a lot of pressure on him and hopefully he will make that decision and commit to Florida State," Seabury said, "but he has a lot of offers to choose from and if he doens't I still support him ... but it would be great if he was to come play with me."
The commitment obviously gives the 'Noles a leg up on the recruitment of Patrick, who has 45 FBS scholarship offers.
Seabury picked Florida State over offers from Miami and Kent State and his recruitment had just started to pick up as the summer progressed. He was offered by FSU head Coach Jimbo Fisher in person on Wednesday while he was in town on a quick visit.
Seabury is the 20th commitment to the FSU 2014 recruiting class and second from the Orlando area, joining WR Ryan Sousa.
