Florida State 5-star recruit Derwin James has known where he was going to play college football for a few years, so he has had plenty of time to get prepared.
Two years ago, the No. 1 safety recruit in the class of 2015—according to 247Sports.com—committed to Florida State as a freshman. Now he has some ink that will put pressure on him to honor his commitment:
James had the Seminoles logo tattooed on his arm during this offseason, according to 247Sports.com's Josh Newberg.
College football fans may be reminded of Reuben Foster when they see James' tattoo. Entering his senior year, Foster had planned on going to Auburn and even got an Auburn tattoo. He ended up committing to the Tigers' archrival, Alabama.
Even though he still has one more year of high school football, James doesn't plan on changing his commitment.
"I've heard his name a lot since I got it done," James said just days before the two-year anniversary of his commitment. "I've heard it a lot, but that won't be the case at all. I'm not switching. I'm a man of my word."
If he wasn't 100 percent committed to Florida State before, there's a good chance that he is now.
