For a program that has never been considered a "tight end friendly" school, the 'Noles are quickly chaining that perception. A year after signing one of the nation's best at the position in Nick O'Leary, FSU's coaches did the same thing in 2012 with Christo Kourtzidis.
The California native will be no lower than third on the depth chart come fall camp as the Seminoles lost Beau Reliford and Ja'Baris Little to graduation. FSU utilized a three-man rotation last season and Kourtzidis will be part of that group along with O'Leary and Will Tye.
Date publicly committed to FSU: June 18, 2011
