Ronald Darby Commits To Florida State Over Auburn, Notre Dame

Ronald Darby, a consensus four-star recruit, has committed to Florida State, announcing the news on television on National Signing Day 2012. Darby, who played for Potomac High School in Oxon Hill, Md., chose the Seminoles over Auburn and Clemson. He originally committed to Notre Dame, but backed out of his commitment.


Darby had zeroed in on Florida State on National Signing Day after backing out of his Notre Dame commitment in early January. USC was also on his radar, and Maryland was a dark horse that faded from the picture.

Darby was the No. 6 defensive back in the Rivals rankings, trailing Shaq Thompson, Tracy Howard, Landon Collins, Alex Carter and Travis Blanks. He joins a Seminoles recruiting class that includes fellow local recruit Eddie Goldman, who committed to the Seminoles earlier in the day.

Ronald Darby Recruiting Announcement Time, TV Schedule And More

Ronald Darby, a four-star defensive back from Potomac High School in Maryland, will make his college decision on ESPNU at 2:30 p.m. as part of the channel's National Signing Day 2012 special. Darby initially committed to Notre Dame, but backed out and will now decide between Florida State, Clemson, Auburn and the Fighting Irish.

Maryland remains vaguely in the picture, as Darby did end up visiting the school after decommitting from Notre Dame. However, it appears that the Terps are a distant fifth to the above four schools as we inch closer to Darby's ultimate decision. Stranger things have happened, though.
