Onwukaife Commitment #10
"About 30 minutes ago I called up Coach Coley to make it official," said the 3-star linebacker. "He put me on the phone with Coach Fisher and I told them I wanted to make it official and commit to Florida State. They were very thrilled with my decision, and I have to say this feels wonderful. Coach Coley told me they've been getting a lot of praise for finding me. I've done a lot of research into FSU both off and on the field and I feel they are the best option for me."
Coming to Seminole Showtime paid off for Holmes, and he says getting a chance to soak in the environment really helped his decision.
"Just taking the trip up there was important to me," explained Onwukaife. "My father and I loved the family atmosphere and we felt very welcomed and valued while we were there. I feel that Tallahassee is a lively place to be and I am going to enjoy my next 4-5 years there. I will achieve success there."
Holmes told NoleDigest that he chose FSU over UCLA.
"I chose FSU over UCLA because of the fit," Holmes said, "but UCLA was doing a good job recruiting me. It came down to I want to play on the east coast and FSU just set themselves apart so much from everyone else. The bond with Coach Coley my father and I have is great."
Onwukaife had a few words he wanted to share to FSU fans.
"Tell the fans that I appreciate their support and that I am very excited to come to FSU," said Onwukaife. "They showed me a lot of support at Showtime. I am going to bring them some Texas talent (laughs)."
