Parkway safety Israel Mukuamu verbally committed to Florida State last week.
Mukuamu, who transferred to Parkway last school year from Berkeley (Moncks Corner, S.C.) High School, announced the decision at a ceremony at his former high school.
“I am truly blessed to be in the position I am in today,” Mukuamu wrote in a statement he posted on Twitter. “I want to first thank God for all the blessings He has put upon me. I also want to thank my family for all of their support.
“The recruiting process was an adventurous process for me and I’m glad it has come to an end. With that being said, I’m 1,000% COMMITTED to THE FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY.”
The 6-foot-4, 187-pound Mukuamu chose FSU over Indiana, South Carolina and Oklahoma State. He has also received offers from Georgia, Florida and Ole Miss.
Mukuamu is the No. 41 prospect at safety in the country, according to 247Sports.com.
Mukuamu has yet to suit up for a game at Parkway, but he did play in the Panthers’ spring scrimmage against Ouachita and received praise from head coach Neil May.
Mukuamu is the second Parkway player in the Class of 2018 to commit to a Power Five conference school. Quarterback Justin Rogers committed to TCU in May.
