Jameis Winston Commits to Florida State Seminoles: College Football or MLB?

Jameis Winston has committed to Florida State University. Winston, who is Prepstar.com's No. 1 Dual Threat Prospect for 2012, is another brilliant signing for the Seminoles.

Winston announced his decision on ESPNU on Wednesday afternoon.

Winston can hurt you with his legs or his arm. As a junior, he was a 2,300-yard passer and an 800-yard rusher, and he threw just three interceptions while leading.

He is an absolute lead-by-example type of player, as indicated his high school team's 11-win season.

Winston has the arm to make all the throws, looks comfortable in the pocket even when there is pressure all around him and has the football IQ to make decisions that aren't going to drive his coaches insane.

He’s safe when he needs to be and a risk-taker when the time is right. He is a dual-threat prospect who has the potential to excel in any system in college.

However, the Hueytown senior is not only a world class football player; he is an equally impressive baseball player. Prepstar.com projects Winston as a high draft pick in the 2012 First-Year Player Draft.

The question remains: Will Jameis Winston ever play on Saturdays?

Winston's must decide between playing college football or cashing in on a seven figure contract to play baseball.

Winston isn't taking the decision lightly. In the past, he had claimed he would attend college no matter what. His tune has recently changed, which should make Noles fans very nervous.

"There's a good chance I might have to make a decision between playing those sports in college and pro baseball." he said. "I've got a big summer ahead where I'll be playing more baseball than football. This is the most important baseball summer I will go through." 

There is no doubt that Jameis Winston will help any team he is a part of, regardless of sport. For Noles fans, they pray he turns his back on millions of dollars and comes to Tallahassee.
