While taking on Canisius Monday night, the Florida State men’s basketball team added to its 2019 recruiting class.
The Seminoles landed a commitment from 2019 three-star center Naheem McLeod out of Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania.
McLeod announced his decision Monday night after taking an official visit to FSU the weekend of FSU’s second preseason exhibition and the Clemson football game on Oct. 27.
He chose the Seminoles over his other finalists of LaSalle and Rhode Island and is currently the No. 182 overall player and No. 35 center in the 2019 recruiting class.
Standing seven feet tall and weighing 195 pounds, McLeod projects as a center, a position of need in the Seminoles’ recruiting class with Christ Koumadje in his final year of eligibility this season.
He is FSU’s fifth 2019 commit, joining four-star center Balsa Koprivica, four-star small forward Patrick Williams, three-star small forward Zimife Nwokeji and two-star shooting guard Nathaniel Jack.
With the addition of McLeod, FSU’s 2019 recruiting class is No. 13 in the 247Sports Composite Class Rankings and No. 2 in the ACC behind only Louisville.
