In a nationally televised announcement, Lorenzo Booker, the Student Sports No. 1 recruit in the Hot 100, surprised the crowd by choosing Florida State.

Booker, a 5-11, 180-pound running back from St. Bonaventure (Ventura, Calif.), had made indications he was heading to Notre Dame.

Instead, he picked the Seminoles during a press conference that was carried live by ESPN.
