TE Saunders commits to Florida State

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The long-awaited visit of Mavin Saunders (Houston/Kinkaid School) to Florida State culminated in a commitment on Saturday afternoon.

The 6-foot-5, 233-pound tight end confirmed that he is joining the Seminoles' 2014 class.

A native of The Bahamas, Saunders chose Florida State over Arkansas, Houston, Illinois, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Texas Tech and Utah.

Saunders is the Seminoles' only tight end commitment, and could be the only player at the position in this class.

Tim Brewster, Saunders' position and area recruiter, led FSU's efforts to land him. Saunders' commitment caps a strong first session of camp for the Seminoles. Florida State has had four commitments this week.
