TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Local football standout Travis Jay has decided to stay close to home and play for Florida State.
The Madison County junior defensive back officially committed to the Seminoles on Tuesday during a visit to campus with his mom and Madison County head coach Mike Coe.
"It feels great. When I went there, it just felt like home," said Jay.
Jay, 6-foot, 175 pounds, is rated a 3-star prospect by most recruiting sites, but his recruitment has picked up steam as of late. He chose FSU over the likes of Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Louisville, Miami, Purdue and Tennessee.
He's plays as a safety right now for Madison County, but Jay says Florida State's staff plans to play him at corner once he arrives.
He helped lead the Cowboys to the 1A state title his junior season with 59 tackles, eight interceptions, and six pass break-ups, and two pick-sixes.
