Javonte Seabury committed to Florida State last summer, but since has decided he fits better at Florida International. Last weekend, he flipped his pledge from the Seminoles to the Golden Panthers.
“I figured it would be a better opportunity for me all around and I just love the coaches,” Seabury said.
“I love the spread offense, because I feel I can make an impact in that offense and I can be used more because of my speed. I felt like at Florida State it would be different, because they have a pro-style offense. I just feel like I won’t fit into that the way I would at FIU.”
The 5-foot-8, 145-pound athlete was recruited by FIU Head Coach Ron Turner, who was very happy to accept Seabury’s pledge.
“I have a really strong relationship with him, we talk a lot. He’s a real guy, he keeps it real, he speaks it mind,” Seabury said.
“He was so excited, he told me to hold on because he was going to tell everybody that I committed. I talked to a lot of the coaches and they told me, ‘Congratulations,’ ‘Welcome to the family,’ and ‘You’re going to love FIU.’”
Seabury still plans to take an official visit to FSU, along with FIU, and maybe one to Cal as well.
