FSU landed Tre’ McKitty, who is one of the top tight ends in the country. The Florida native had previously been committed to Oregon.


Not even the arrival of new head coach Willie Taggart from USF could keep Tre’ McKitty committed to Oregon.

After many college football recruiting experts predicted that McKitty would switch his pledge to Florida State, he did just that on Friday evening. The Class of 2017 three-star tight end flipped from the Ducks, posting a picture of himself on Twitter signing an FSU grant-in-aid agreement.

He is expected to enroll in the Tallahassee school in January.

The IMG Academy star will stay at home and play for Jimbo Fisher and his staff, giving the ‘Noles a 6-4, 225-pound pass-catching option who was a participant at The Opening 2016, held at Nike World Headquarters this past July. The showcase event is designed for the nation’s top high school players.

While Taggart is expected to do well as a recruiter at Oregon, the coaching turnover with the Ducks likely didn’t help their cause in their pursuit of McKitty. Plus, FSU tight ends coach Tim Brewster and wide receivers coach Lawrence Dawsey were strong on McKitty’s trail during the duration of his recruitment.

With the Ducks anticipating that they could lose McKitty, Taggart and his staff extended an offer to junior college tight end Mik’Quan Deane earlier on Friday. The 6-4, 230-pound product out of Northeastern Oklahoma A&M expressed immediate interest in the Ducks.

McKitty wasn’t the only top recruit on Friday announcing his intention to play for the ‘Noles. Earlier in the day, junior college linebacker Adonis Thomas joined the team’s 2017 class. Like McKitty, who became FSU’s 15th member of the class, Thomas is expected to enroll in January. The linebacker spent his redshirt freshman season at Alabama before transferring and enrolling at Northwest Mississippi Community College.
