Signing day switch for Dante Fowler

ESPNU 150 defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. (St. Petersburg, Fla./Lakewood) was committed to the Seminoles for almost 14 months. But Florida State found out Wednesday that a 14-month verbal commitment does not equal a signature, as Fowler broke the hearts of Seminole Nation and picked the archrival Gators, ESPN's GatorNation.com reports.

Fowler, a 6-foot-3, 235-pound prospect with 4.6 speed, also received scholarship offers from Auburn, USC, South Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio State and Tennessee, among several others.
