A defensive lineman from Florida that Georgia offered just last week committed to Florida State on Tuesday.
Lonnie Gosha, a 6-foot-3, 270-pound defensive lineman from Union County High School in Lake Butler, Fla., informed the Seminoles of his decision Tuesday night. He had several offers but said it came down to FSU, Georgia and Alabama.
“I just love all the coaches,” Gosha told WarChant.com. “At Georgia I just really know Coach [Mark] Richt and I met the other coaches, like Coach [John] Lilly and Coach [Rodney] Garner. At Florida State, they spoke with me every day and checked up on me and I just feel like I know the entire staff there. I also like it because my mom can come and see me play.”
Gosha still plans to attend Alabama’s A-Day spring game in Tuscaloosa on April 17 but was otherwise done with recruiting.
Gosha is the Seminoles’ 12th commitment and follows Southwest DeKalb’s Terrance Smith, who became No. 11 on Sunday. FSU currently has room for only 12 players next season unless attrition allows room for more.
