Florida State commitment Denzel Ware had an impressive junior season, so it’s no surprise other schools haven’t backed off recruiting him. The 2014 linebacker remains solid in his FSU pledge, but has been and will continue to visit other schools. Get the latest on Ware right here.

“I’m still committed to Florida State. I talk to Florida State almost every day. Florida is still recruiting me heavily, and LSU (is too),” Denzel Ware said.

“I’m firm to FSU, but me an my family also want to check out other programs before I sign.”

The Crestview (Crestview, FL) junior won’t sign for quire some time, and he plans to take all his visits before he does. Ware says besides Florida State, Florida and LSU are the two recruiting him the most.

“Florida, it’s just crazy. I like the defensive structure that they use, how Coach (Will) Muschamp coaches the defense. The defense is the backbone of that team. It’s just great watching (Dominique) Easley and (Jon) Bostic – those two guys make plays,” he said.

“LSU is a great school, their stadium is rocking. Watching a couple of the games I went to (I could see) they never give up, they always play hard. That’s what you expect from those teams, that’s the type of program you’d want to be in.”

Hearing the news of the loss of Defensive Coordinator Mark Stoops at Florida State was very disappointing for Ware, but he’s been able to work through it.

“I had a great relationship with Coach Stoops. When I heard the news he was leaving, it kind of brought me down, but then I talked to a couple of guys from FSU, they said it’s not guaranteed that all coaches are going to be there and that I have to choose a school that I want to be at for the next four years, I have to go where my heart wants me to go,” he said.

The 6-foot-2, 215-pound athlete had quite an impressive junior season – he broke his school’s career sack record, previously 46, and now holds the top spot with 48 sacks – and he’s only a junior. He says it was his best season yet.

“There was a lot of things I had to work on, getting stronger, using my hands more. It was great, I worked hard and I became stronger and progressed a lot,” he said.

Now, he turns his attention to playing basketball at Crestview, and he’ll probably take some visits after the season ends.

“After basketball I want to check out Alabama, Florida, I want to visit LSU, and of course, Florida State again,” Ware said.
