Lake Mary defensive tackle Adam Torres sent a text message Monday night announcing, "I committed to Florida State. I spoke to the coaches," thus becoming the third Central Florida blue-chip defender of the day to make his college commitment.
Torres, a 6-foot-6, 272-pound tackle who will also play tight end this season at Lake Mary, picked, Florida State over his two other finalists of Miami and South Carolina.
Torres is the 23rd commitment to the 2014 recruiting class for the Seminoles, and the fourth defensive tackle, joining Demarcus Christmas of Bradenton Manatee, Dexter Wideman of Saluda, S.C., and Fredrick Jones of Miami Central.
Torres made one last recruiting visit this past weekend to Tallahassee and liked what he saw.
