Seminoles Get Another DT

Wednesday, July 31, 2013 3:53pm

Florida State added a new commitment on Monday with defensive tackle Adam Torres out of Lake Mary (Fla.) High.

Measuring in at 6-foot-5, 270-pounds, Torres is a big player with good size and strength. While he has things to work on (such as pass rushing), he’s a nice player with a lot of upside due to his size and motor. Plus, Torres has versatility with the ability to play defensive tackle or defensive end.

After visiting Florida State in early July, he came back last weekend to see a little more.

“I felt very comfortable with FSU,” Torres told Warchant.com’s Michael Langston. “It’s hard to explain, but the wisdom I felt all the coaches had was the one thing that impressed me. After sitting down and looking at everything I’ve been blessed to choose from, my family and I felt that Florida State was the right choice.”

The three-star prospect should be one of the last commitments for Florida State, as that boat is almost full at 23 commitments now. Of the 23, Torres becomes the fourth defensive tackle in FSU's recruiting class, along with Demarcus Christmas, Frederick Jones and Dexter Wideman. The Seminoles will need more bodies with two seniors (Jacobbi McDaniel and Demonte McAllister) leaving, as well as the potential early departure of preseason first-teamer Timmy Jernigan.

Rivals.com ranks Torres as the No. 33 defensive tackle in the country, while Scout.com has him ranked No. 35. Torres also held offers from Georgia Tech, Louisville, Miami, N.C. State, Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Wisconsin, among others.
