Who will be the next commitment for #Tribe21?

Despite the pause on the field, Florida State is still working hard off of it on the recruiting trail to bring a top 2021 class to Tallahassee. The class is currently ranked No. 24 in the country and has made three additions so far this offseason. The first commitment head coach Mike Norvell landed after being hired was local three-star defensive end Joshua Farmer. In early February, the Seminoles found their signal-caller in four-star quarterback Luke Altmyer. Four days later, they landed defensive star and bell cow Branden Jennings, who has done a great job of recruiting other top prospects.

However, a month after landing 2022 CB Travis Hunter, fans are chomping at the bit to get some momentum going during this downtime, so, who’s next for #Tribe21? While many prospects will likely delay their decisions due to the coronavirus affecting visits, one player may pull the trigger to continue his future in garnet and gold soon.

Four-star wide receiver Destyn Pazon has unofficially visited Florida State twice over the last couple of months, most recently on March 7 for junior day. Upon exiting his visit, Pazon named the Seminoles his leader in interviews with the media and listed them in his top-five that he released last week along with Alabama, Oklahoma, Florida, and LSU.

Since then, crystal balls have been pouring in predicting the Lousiana native to commit to FSU. 13 crystal balls have been submitted for Pazon since March 29, with all 13 of them reading Florida State. It’s been rumored that the talented receiver could commit within the next two weeks, if he does, expect him to be a ‘Nole.

The 6-foot, 170-pound receiver has a great relationship with running backs coach David Johnson, who has deep recruiting ties to Louisiana and knows current players like true freshman Corey Wren. He also likes the way Florida State’s offense will utilize receivers under Norvell and offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham. Pazon is currently rated as the No. 131 overall prospect, the No. 22 WR, and the No. 6 player in the state of Lousiana in the 2021 class according to the 247Sports composite, earning him a four-star distinction.

Another guy to keep an eye is three-star linebacker Andrew Jones, who’s also from the Boot State. He had an excellent visit to Tallahassee on March 11 that resulted in him earning an offer from Florida State after talking with the staff. Recently, Jones posted to Twitter that he could commit at any time, with no specific date in mind.

The additions are coming for #Tribe21.
