It hasn't taken long for the Florida State Seminoles to see their national title pay dividends on the recruiting trail.

As tweeted by Warchant.com, FSU added 247Sports composite 4-star lineman Kendrick Norton to its 2015 recruiting class.

The Jacksonville, Fla., native claimed an enormous offer list but pulled the trigger for the 'Noles over Auburn, Florida, South Carolina, Tennessee and several others.

Warchant identified Norton as a defensive tackle, but 247Sports projects him as an offensive guard. He is listed as the No. 13 offensive guard for 2015 by 247.

At 6'2", 275 pounds, he has the size to fill either role.

Norton was one of three Trinity Christian Academy prospects to commit Thursday. Deontai Williams, a 3-star safety, announced his pledge to Florida, while 2016 running back Jalin Buie announced for Auburn.

Buie is the younger brother of West Virginia running back Andrew Buie.

Norton's pledge marks the second 2015 haul in two days for FSU. The 'Noles brought in 4-star safety Calvin Brewton Wednesday.

Norton is the fifth member of Florida State's 2015 class. As of his commitment, the Seminoles were No. 1 in the ACC and No. 6 nationally in the 247Sports composite rankings.

It has been a remarkable month of January already for FSU. The Seminoles have accepted five early enrollees from their 2014 class, most notably 5-star running back Dalvin Cook. They also took verbal pledges from 4-star receiver Travis Rudolph and 4-star defensive end Lorenzo Featherston.

With Florida State's reign as champion only a few days old, look for the recruiting momentum to continue.
