Head coach Mike Norvell and the Seminoles have been hot on the 2021 recruiting trail over the last two months. In the past 60 days, Florida State has added six commitments to its 2021 class including three-star linebacker Jordan Eubanks from Denton, TX.
1010XL caught up with Eubanks to discuss his commitment.
“I prayed over it and after the virtual visit I knew that Florida State was the school for me,” Eubanks said. “Coach Norvell seems like a very passionate guy that truly loves what he does and I appreciated that. He did good things at Memphis, so just check his track record. He’s a great coach and a proven coach. He’s passionate and that’s what I love to see from a head coach.”
Eubanks, (6-foot-2, 200 pounds) who chose Florida State over offers from schools including Arkansas, Colorado, Michigan State and Pittsburgh, was asked to describe his game and what he will bring to the Seminoles.
“I can do anything you ask me to do,” he said. “I would say my biggest strength is my length and my ability to make open field tackles. I can also make plays in space, so I’m a linebacker with safety skills.”
With Florida State receiving six new commitments in the past two months, Eubanks was asked why he feels Florida State is beginning to pick up traction on the recruiting trail.
“The players see it,” Eubanks said. “They see what Florida State brings and they see the tradition and spark down there. That is a great school and a great program on and off the field.”
Eubanks talked about what it means to him to commit to a program with the tradition Florida State has.
“It means a lot because I grew up seeing players like Jalen Ramsey, Derwin James, Dalvin Cook and Jameis Winston,” Eubanks said. “I grew up seeing all those guys and watching that team, so it means a lot.”
Finally, Eubanks had this message for the Seminole fan base.
“A lot of people say I need to bulk up and I need to do this and do that, I’m coming to Florida State to develop as a player and ultimately win a national title,” he said. “I’m going there to make them better as well as myself better. I am committed and I want to play at Florida State.”
