Tim Jernigan Commits To Florida State, Strengthens Nation's Top Class

Tim Jernigan, a four star defensive tackle of enormous proportions from Lake City, FL, has committed to Florida State this morning. Jernigan made his announcement without theatrics in the gymnasium of his high school while holding his nephew. His nephew looked like a rag doll in his hands, which he should have because Jernigan is absolutely humongous.

Jernigan’s stock really rose during the All-Star exhibition season where he dominated, but his physical assets coming out of high school are eye-popping. Thick is one word you will hear to describe him; another is “terrifyingly huge,” since Jernigan is already 275 pounds coming out of high school and it is a lean 275 at that.

Tomahawk Nation credits FSU assistant Odell Haggins for snagging a longtime Gator fan for the ’Noles:

A lot of credit goes to Coah Odell Haggins with securing the commitment. Jernigan who lives only 40 miles from University of Florida campus, was considered a Gator lean early in the recruiting process. He started visiting Florida State in the summer of his 8th grade year for Seminoles Football camps. Haggins coached Jernigan during that football camp years ago and Haggins and Jernigan developed a close bond.
