Denson fulfills dream, commits to FSU

Instant analysis: Four-star OL Ira Denson

Madison County, Fla. offensive guard Ira Denson was offered by several schools this spring. But Florida State was the one particular offer he was waiting on. That offer finally came a month ago. But when would he pull the trigger?

Just a short time ago, Denson informed Warchant.com he committed to FSU during a meeting with head coach Jimbo Fisher.

Denson becomes the 'Noles tenth commitment and second offensive lineman in the 2013 recruiting class.

"I committed to Coach Fisher a few minutes ago," said Denson. "I told him 'Add me to your roster coach. I'm a Seminole.'"

Denson had a lackluster junior season, but emerged this spring as a rising star. The scholarship offers steadily poured in soon after. The 'Noles were one of many that showed interest in the 6-foot-3, 316-pound lineman. But Denson was immediately drawn to Rick Trickett from their very first encounter. Trickett had a no-nonsense personality that Denson liked. The offensive line coach didn't make a big fanfare about the Cowboy's emerging star, instead, Trickett was straight forward, to the point and told Denson things he needed to work on to get better.

Denson knew in his heart FSU was the place for him, but wanted to confirm that feeling before he made any decision. He visited campus this afternoon and it didn't take long for those feelings to be reinforced.

"I picked FSU because I felt at home. No better feeling than being here," he said. "I know Coach Trickett is going to work me. I don't want to be babied."

Stay tuned for more on Denson's commitment and what it means for FSU's 2013 class.
