Longtime FSU commit Blake McClain is no longer a part of the Seminoles’ 2014 recruiting class.

The defensive end from Jacksonville Sandalwood decommitted from FSU on Thursday, less than a week before National Signing Day (Feb. 5).

The Sentinel confirmed the news with his high school coach, Adam Geis. 247 Sports first reported the story.

“He is not going to go to FSU,” Geis told the Sentinel via text message. “He changed his mind after talking with [defensive ends coach Sal Sunseri] yesterday.”

McClain (6-3, 257) had been committed to FSU since last March and had been a vocal part of the Seminoles’ class, often trying to sway other recruits towards FSU. Geis said that FSU asked McCain to grey shirt (allowing him to not lose eligibility but not enroll at FSU until later.)

McClain’s primary recruiter, defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, left FSU earlier in January for the same position at Georgia. McClain told the Sentinel at the time that Pruitt encouraged him to remain at FSU.

"He told me, 'Florida State is the place for you to go,' and he wished me the best of luck," McClain said. "It just shows he is a real upstanding guy and I really do appreciate that call."

McClain’s high school teammate, LB Kain Daub, is already enrolled at FSU.

“My guys all committed to FSU when Jeremy Pruitt was the DC,” Geis said. “He recruited them and they trusted him. Everything is different now.”
