    At 6-foot-3, 230 lbs Kirby brings athleticism and quickness to the edge. He’s a tremendous pass rusher. He chose the Seminoles despite additional scholarship offers from Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Ohio State, Tennessee and others.

    Kirby released a brief statement regarding his pledge.

    “I’m truly honored and blessed to say that I’ve decided to commit my talents to Florida State University.”

    As for Oladele, who attends Miami Edison Senior High School, he also released a brief statement to announce his commitment to FSU.

    “[I’m] blessed to say I’m committed to Florida State University.”

    At 6-foot-5, 235 lbs Oladele has all the physical tools you want in a defensive end — especially the frame and size. He brings intensity to the position and will play until the whistle.

    He holds other offers from Florida, Georgia, Miami, Oregon, Tennessee, Wisconsin and more.
