Florida State made another quality addition to its 2016 recruiting class on Saturday when Havelock, North Carolina, linebacker Keion Joyner committed to the Seminoles. Joyner revealed his decision to ESPN after the Under Armour All-American game.
A consensus 4-star prospect, Joyner logged 86 tackles, including 5.5 sacks and 16 total tackles for loss, as a junior at Havelock High School in 2014. However, he was dismissed from the team three months ago, as reported by the New Bern Sun Journal.
No reason was provided for the dismissal.
Joyner is the second player from his state to pledge to FSU this cycle, joining Charlotte defensive end Josh Brown. He is one of 18 prospects in his class to pick the Seminoles.
Florida State’s 2016 group is rated No. 3 nationally by 247Sports.
