Keith Bryant chooses FSU over Miami
By Andrea Adelson
ESPN 150 defensive tackle Keith Bryant announced Wednesday that he would play for Florida State, choosing the Seminoles over Miami.
Bryant, rated the No. 135 overall player in the nation out of Delray Beach, Fla., was once a Miami commitment. But he changed his mind because, "I love what they're doing up there in Tallahassee. I love the atmosphere, I love the coaches."
The No. 14 overall defensive tackle was just the latest to make a choice between the rival schools on signing day. Florida State also won the battle for No. 1 overall linebacker Matthew Thomas, who chose the Noles over Miami.
But Miami won two others -- ESPN 150 receiver Stacy Coley picked the Canes over Florida State and three-star running back Gus Edwards also picked Miami over the Noles.
Florida State now has six ESPN 150 commits and 11 from the ESPN 300. The Seminoles picked up three ESPN 150 players alone Wednesday -- Bryant, Thomas and cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who flipped from USC.
