Florida State’s 2019 basketball recruiting class picked up its first member on Thursday.

Zimife Nwokeji‏, a 4-star small forward, out of Maclay High School in Tallahassee pledged his services to the Seminoles. Nwokeji had offers from Butler, Florida, Georgia Tech and Ohio State among others.

At 6-foot-7 and 180 pounds, Nwokeji is listed as the No. 76 overall prospect for 2019, per the 247Sports Composite and the sixth best player in Florida. Nwokeji is also listed as the No. 23 small forward.

With the addition of Nwokeji, FSU now has the No. 10 overall class for 2019. Guard Devin Vassell is the only committed player for 2018. FSU has just two scholarship seniors this season, but three scholarship juniors.
