Four-star tight end Nasier Upshur verbally committed to Florida State, he announced in a video Tuesday.

The news comes just over a month after the No. 1 tight end in the nation, Isaac Nauta, decommitted from the Seminoles. FSU also lost wide receiver Keith Gavin, previously their only recruit at the position, last week to a decommittment.

“North Philly made me,” Upshur, an Imhotep Institute product, said in a Bleacher Report video. “Florida State, I’ll give you everything I have because I know no different.”

Florida State’s 2016 recruiting class is currently ranked No. 3 in the nation, according to Rivals. The Seminoles beat out Michigan, USC, South Carolina, Arizona State, and Temple for Upshur.

Florida State opens the season Sept. 5 against Texas State.
