TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida State has landed one of the nation's top cornerbacks with Tennessee high school star Jalen Ramsey signing to play for the Seminoles.

Ramsey, who played at Brentwood Academy just south of Nashville, signed his letter of intent Wednesday. Ramsey, who was ranked as high as the 10th best player nationally by one recruiting service, had verbally committed to USC last summer.

The Seminoles also landed linebacker Matthew Thomas from Booker T. Washington High School in Miami. The 6-3, 205-pound Thomas was regarded among the nation's top 15 prospects and ranked by some as the top linebacker in this year's class of high school players.

But Thomas' high school teammate, offensive tackle Denver Kirkland, chose Arkansas over the Seminoles.
