Florida State landed its second commitment of the evening Wednesday night when Tampa Catholic offensive guard Corey Martinez committed to the Seminoles.
The 6-foot-4, 297-pound Martinez announced his decision at Nike's The Opening, where earlier Wednesday the 'Noles also received a commitment from Lake City Columbia safety Trey Marshall.
Martinez, the 17th commitment to the Seminoles' 2014 recruiting class, is a highly touted guard prospect who is ranked No. 22 in the nation by 247Sports.com
He told the recruiting Noles247.com reporter Chris Nee, "What it came down to was me feeling comfortable with the school and my relationship with (offensive line) Coach (Rick) Trickett and (head coach) Jimbo Fisher."
He chose Florida State from a list of six finalists that included Alabama, LSU, Miami, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.
If Martinez stays true to his commitment and signs with the 'Noles on Feb. 5, he will be the second Tampa Catholic player on the FSU roster, joining receiver Christian Green.
Martinez is the No. 69 player in the Sentinel's 2014 Florida Top 100.
