247 Sports is listing Giovanni Davis as a commit, reportedly committing back in August. It seems probable he was the "silent commit" we didn't know about. It looks like he is going to be given a 3-star rating of 0.83.

Yes, 247Sports added Giovanni Davis, a 6'3/230 DE/DL from Miami Dr, Krop as one of our commitments. I agree with BAD and also suspect Davis might have been the commitment we didn't know about, but then again we don't know for sure. At any rate, Davis becomes FIU's 14th known commitment at this point. Davis reportedly chose FIU over offers from FAU, Buffalo, UConn, and Southerm Mississippi. He is yet, another local commitment for this coming class of recruits. So far we have 12 out of our 14 commitments from the South Florida tri-county area.

Here's his highlight film: https://www.hudl.com/profile/9199920/Giovanni-Davis

Welcome to FIU, Giovanni!!

UPDATED KNOWN COMMITMENT LIST AT THE TOP OF THIS THREAD


Davis is publicly stating he’s not committed to FIU. Therefore, we jus adjusted our known commitment list at the top of this thread.

Chance Coleman, a 6'1/205 LB from Gaither HS in Tampa, just committed yesterday after while visiting FIU over the weekend. The 247Sports, Rivals, and ESPN (grade 75) 3-Stars player was previously committed to USF with the previous coaching staff. Reportedly, chose FIU over offers from Cincinnati, USF, Colorado State, FAU, Southern Miss, and Liberty.

With his commitment, we now have 15 signees and either 2 or 3 known commitments. I'm not sure what is the status of Wati Huggins from Northwestern HS, who had committed to FIU a while back, but didn't sign during December signing period. From all accounts, Darius Stokes is still publicly an FIU commitment, but couldn't sign in December, probably due to test scores.

Darius Stokes, a 5'10/185 DB/Safety from Miami Carol City HS, has committed to FIU after his second tweet announcing it. Darius, a 247 Sports and ESPN (grade 74) 3-Stars player, committed to FIU over reported offer from fellow C-USA team Southern Miss. Somewhat undersized to play safety, Stokes more than compensates with strength and solid hits defensively, as his highlight films show. He becomes FIU's Class of 2020's 12th known commitment, and from those 12 a whopping 10 are from South Florida area high schools (including Palm Beach County).

Welcome to FIU, Darius!

UPDATED KNOWN COMMITMENT LIST AT THE TOP OF THIS THREAD


Stokes just announced on Twitter he “de-committed” from FIU. Good luck to the kid. I have adjusted accordingly our list. I have a feeling that Wati Huggins is not in the plans for FIU as well, but will wait to see if anything transpired publicly.

Alvin "AJ" Mathis, a 6'1/210 LB from Largo HS in Largo, FL has now committed to FIU as per a tweet. Mathis, a one-time commitment of UM, becomes this class highest rated commitment as per 247Sports, is a 247Sports, Rivals, and ESPN (grade 77) athlete. Mathis reportedly has had offers from the likes of Auburn, UF, FSU, Iowa, Arizona State, Oregon, Minnesota, Iowa State, Nebraska, Missouri, Purdue, Pitt, Syracuse, Louisville, Rutgers, West Virginia, Vanderbilt, and UCF among others. Had 104 tackles, with 4 sacks as a senior. Apparently, late it was between FIU and Arizona State.

He becomes FIU's 17th known signee/commitment at this time. Great pickup for Butch and company.

Fanatic, small housekeeping items. Rivaldo Fairweather (74) and Kameren Williams (72) were both rated 3 stars by ESPN. Just so we can update the first page on this thread :) .

Thanks for the heads up, reinier! Must have been added late in ESPN site. Also noted that kicker Chase Gabriel was awarded 3-Stars (grade 72) by ESPN. All changes duly updated in our database now. Thanks.

Our overall 247 Composite numbers will improve once they take into consideration the recent gradings by ESPN. However, they will be reduced with the substraction of Darius Stokes, Giovani Davis, and Wati Huggins, who at this point there's no mention of him as being committed to FIU anymore anywhere. I will take him out of our list for the time being.

Yeah I sent a tweet to 247 asking them to update our commits and visits but doubt they take any action.

ESPN has literally our entire class rated as 3-stars. They seem to be handing out more ratings this year.
