BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - One of the nation's top high school quarterbacks is bound for Florida State.
Hueytown's Jameis Winston announced his decision Friday at an indoor sports complex in Birmingham.
ESPN and Rivals.com both rate Winston as the nation's top quarterback and among the nation's 15 best prospects. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound dual threat quarterback was MVP of the UnderArmour All-American Game.
Winston also an outfielder and pitcher who could be a high draft pick in pro baseball.
He committed to the Seminoles in August but was at a football all-star game on signing day and waited to make it official. Winston's decision is a big boost for a Florida State class that ESPNU had already rated No. 2 nationally behind Alabama, which also heavily pursued Winston.
