Sh’mar Kilby-Lane, a four-star outside linebacker, is the newest addition to Jimbo Fisher’s 2015 commitment list. Kilby-Lane’s coach announced his star player’s commitment via his personal twitter account.
Hallandale LB Sh'mar Kilby Lane commits to Florida State— Coach Dameon Jones (@Dameon8) June 7, 2014
Kilby-Lane is rated the No. 13 outside linebacker in the nation by 247Sports. The native of Hallandale, Florida, plays for Hallandale High School. He collected five sacks, four interceptions and two forced fumbles during his junior year campaign.
Kilby-Lane surprised many who assumed he was a lock to play for Urban Meyer’s Ohio State Buckeyes. In addition to Ohio State, he also turned away offers from Alabama, Florida and Clemson to go play for the Seminoles.
He will be the second linebacker Florida State has landed so far, along with three-star Brian Bell out of Georgia. Kilby-Lane is the fourth highest-rated recruit in this class and highest at linebacker.
