FSU DT Timmy Jernigan is looking to take the next step and perhaps become the next dominant Seminoles defensive tackle.

At a school ripe with tradition at the defensive tackle position, rising sophomore Timmy Jernigan wasted little time in announcing his intention to add his name to the list of dominant Florida State defensive linemen. 

Despite returning both starters last season in the middle of the Seminoles' defensive front four, Jernigan proved to be too talented to keep off the field as a true freshman. The 6’3”, 303-pounder led all Seminoles interior linemen with 30 tackles in 2011 (six behind the line of scrimmage) to go along with two-and-a-half sacks and a fumble recovery en route to Freshman All-American honors. 

So what can Jimbo Fisher and Seminoles fan expect for an encore from the Lake City (Fla.) native?  

Here is everything you need to know about Florida State sophomore defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan.
