2015 Florida Safety Commits To FSU

After winning the BCS Championship game earlier this week, you could probably guess that Florida State would be making a lot of headlines, but you also shouldn't be surprised to know that the Seminoles also just added their sixth 2015 commitment.

Calvin Brewton is a 5-11, 180-pound defensive back out from Miami (FL) Central High. He is a four-star safety according to Scout.com and a three-star safety according to Rivals.com. Scout labels him as 2015's No. 16 safety, while Rivals has him four places lower, at No. 20. 

Regardless of the differences of the two sites, it is clear that Jimbo Fisher is well on his way to another strong class, and all of those stories about the return of another FSU dynasty don't seem premature anymore.

Fisher is having early success in 2015 in-state, with Brewton and four other players hailing from Florida. Marlon Gonzalez (DE), Derwin James (ATH), De'Andre Johnson and Kendrick Norton (DT) are all from Florida as well, with three-star tight end Josh McNeil currently the only 2015 recruit who's not from Florida - McNeil hails from Wesson, Miss.

With Brewton's announcement, he becomes the first defensive back of the 2015 class to commit to the Seminoles. He told Warchant.com that one of the reasons he decided to commit to Florida State was watching FSU's current secondary in the BCS Championship game.

"Watching guys like Lamarcus Joyner, Terrance Brooks and P.J. Williams fly around like that only made me want it more. I mean I had it in the back of my head that FSU was where I wanted to be. I just didn't think I needed to wait any longer," he said. "I love everything about FSU and that's where I want to play the next four years."

Brewton, who is being recruited mostly as a safety, liked what defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt is doing with the program, and said Pruitt liked some things about him as well.

"I've liked FSU for a while, so I felt the time was right. I just love everything about the defense and what coach Pruitt is doing over there," he said. "Coach Pruitt likes how I break on the football and make plays."
