Florida State has landed a verbal commitment from one of the top two-sport athletes in the Wiregrass. Northview senior defensive back Marquez White has committed to the Seminoles.
White is better known for his exploits on the basketball court, but his football stock has risen dramatically in recent months. He had 10 offers for football, including Alabama and Troy.
White has ideal size to play defensive back at the next level, standing 6-foot-1 and weighing 175 pounds. He's been clocked at 4.5 in the 40-yard dash.
"It was something I had been working for for awhile and I told my parents that when I get it that's where I'm going to school at because it's not that close to home it's not that far," White said. "I feel like I can help in the secondary. I feel like I can help with my athleticism and energy and all that stuff. It was like a no-brainer."
