Florida State's defensive line continues to get reinforcements from the Class of 2013, the latest coming from the commitment of four-star defensive tackle Keith Bryant.

Bryant, a former Miami verbal commit from Delray Beach, Fla., chose the Seminoles over the Hurricanes and South Carolina in a nationally televised ceremony from Atlantic Community High School. He is ranked as the No. 24 prospect at his position by 247Sports and was visited late last week by both Steve Spurrier and Al Golden.  

Jimbo Fisher said early Wednesday that the defensive line and linebacker positions were specific needs he hoped to address in the Class of 2013, and Bryant joins defensive end DeMarcus Walker -- the No. 8-ranked prospect in the state of Florida -- as the next line of reinforcements for new defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt.

The Seminoles beefed up their linebacker position with a commitment from five-star Matthew Thomas, one of the top-rated outside linebackers in the country, and they hope to add four-star inside linebacker E.J. Levenberry Wednesday afternoon to round out the class.
