Marlon Humphrey is the type of player who can come in and make an impact almost instantly, especially at a place such as Florida State, where freshmen are given just as much opportunity to play as seniors.
Humphrey is the No. 1 cornerback, according to 247Sports, scoring 99 with five stars.
Unfortunately, Alabama was the overwhelming favorite to land him, which is mainly due to the fact that he's a Birmingham, Ala., native.
FSU was making a late push. Humphrey visited Tallahassee on Jan. 17 and posted screenshots of him texting with Jameis Winston. Ultimately, though, the corner decided to commit to Alabama on Wednesday, Jan. 29.
The biggest obstacle in FSU's path may have been the departure of Jeremy Pruitt to Georgia, since Pruitt was in charge of recruitment.
About a week ago, new defensive coordinator Charles Kelly took over the duties, and he and Fisher visited Humphrey in Alabama. Getting the 5-star talent to Tallahassee while battling against the recruiting machine that is Nick Saban was going to be a difficult task, but Fisher did his best to pull it off.
