Ira Denson, a fast rising offensive line recruit, committed to the Florida State Seminoles Thursday afternoon. The commitment was leaked previously by Florida State defensive tackle Jacobbi McDaniel, who also played at Madison (Fla.) County High School in the class of 2008, but Denson waited to make it official until he could speak with Florida State's coaches in person.
Denson was first discovered on a large scale at the Orlando Nike Football Training Camp (NFTC) in April, where he wowed observers by stoning Florida Gator defensive tackle commitment Caleb Brantley. Denson is a four-star recruit on both Rivals and 247, while scout tags him as a three-star and says he is the 20th rated guard.
Denson picked up offers from Florida State, and South Carolina in recent weeks, and Georgia is expected to offer soon.
At 6'4" and 320 pounds, Denson shows excellent power and punch. He needs to continue to reshape his body, as he did during the off-season. That should enable him to be quicker, particularly laterally.
Florida State now has ten commitments in the class of 2013.
