5-star LB commits to FSU

Jacksonville (Fla.) Sandalwood five-star linebacker Kain Daub had been leaning towards Florida State after a number of recent unofficial visits to Tallahassee.

Daub chose FSU over Alabama.

Late Friday evening, he made it official that he would play his college football in Tallahassee.

“Yes, he did it last night,” Sandalwood head coach Adam Geis told Noles247.com. “He told some of the staff last night.”

Daub also confirmed the commitment.

"Yeah," Daub said when asked if he committed. "I'm heading back up there (FSU) now."

Geis believed that Daub was going to personally inform Jimbo Fisher on Saturday, when he is expected to attend a Florida State practice.

Geis shared some insight on how the decision came about.

“He told me he was ready and I asked if he was definitely sure and he said he was,” Geis said. “(Kain) doesn’t really enjoy the recruiting. I think he is tired of dealing with it and he was comfortable with Florida State. So he went ahead and did it. I expect him to be done with it all now.”

The 6-foot-3, 234-pound linebacker was recruited to Florida State by defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt. Daub chose Florida State over Alabama. He had previously pledged to LSU before backing off that commitment.

Daub marks the third Jacksonville (Fla.) Sandalwood product to commit to Florida State in the last three months. He joins defensive end DeMarcus Walker, who is now enrolled, as well as Class of 2014 teammate, defensive end Blake McClain.

Daub’s commitment was first reported by the Florida Times-Union.
