Chad Mavety Commits to Florida State: Noles Land No. 2 JUCO OT

Days after sealing its national championship game fate, Florida State added an important piece for future title runs. Coveted offensive tackle Chad Mavety confirmed his commitment to the Seminoles on Monday morning via Twitter.

The junior college standout is a promising top-tier bookend who commanded offers from programs throughout the nation. Mavety, a 4-star recruit, chose Florida State from a list that includes Alabama, Ohio State, Texas A&M and Wisconsin.

He spent time in Tallahassee last month during a visit that featured a Seminoles victory over Miami. The 6'6.5", 320-pound prospect identified the opportunity to make an early impact as motivation to focus on Florida State.

“[Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher] talked to me about how I could make a big impact on this team and help them immediately,” Mavety told 247Sports writer Chris Nee earlier this year. “He believes I can help them win some games. That was his biggest thing, just making sure I knew that I had an immediate opportunity there and that they wanted me and believe I can help them."

Mavety is rated the nation's second-best JUCO offensive tackle and No. 5 overall JUCO prospect in 247Sports' composite rankings. He currently attends Nassau Community College (Garden City, N.Y.).

Florida State adds its 24th commit to a 2014 recruiting class ranked seventh nationally by 247Sports. Maverty joins fellow 4-star offensive lineman Corey Martinez (Tampa, Fla.)

Fisher previously landed a pledge from 3-star offensive tackle prospect Ethan Frith (Summit, Miss.). The Seminoles carry plenty of momentum into a pivotal recruiting period, peddling a program that features a Heisman Trophy front-runner and enters the BCS championship as the favorite.

Mavety's decision likely stings in Columbus. He spent an official visit at Ohio State in late November.
