Florida State picks up four during Junior Day

Posted by Bryan Fischer

Junior Days tend to result in commitments and, in the case of Florida State on Saturday, lots of them. The Seminoles grabbed plenty of talent as part of future classes as Orlando (Fla.) linebacker Ro'derrick Hoskins, Auburndale (Fla.) athlete Derwin James, Orlando (Fla.) wide receiver Tony Stevens and Jacksonville (Fla.) linebacker Tyrell Lyons all committed to the program.

"I felt like I was at home. The coaches treated us good ... just everything," Hoskins told the Orlando Sentinel. "The school was nice and that’s pretty much it."

The 6-foot-3, 210-pound Hoskins picked up his offer while in Tallahassee. His high school teammate, Stevens, has been one of the hottest prospects in the South, adding Ohio State and Florida offers this week before picking FSU.

"The visit went much better than I expected," Stevens told 247Sports. "Everything was better than I thought it would be."

James is a versatile athlete who gives the Seminoles and Fisher their first class of 2015 commitment. The other three peg Florida State's upcoming class of 2013 at eight.
