Florida State coach Mike Norvell landed a huge commitment in four-star defensive lineman Myron Charles as he adds to their 2025 class on Friday. With the addition of Charles, Florida State is now ranked No. 12 in On3's rankings and has seven commits this year. Hopefully, this begins a streak as Norvell continues to build the class.



Scouting Myron Charles

Charles is a versatile defensive lineman as he's played multiple techniques. This versatility allows him to be used on various fronts for the Seminoles. Charles came into his junior season at 6-foot-4 and weighing around 300 pounds. In his highlights, he's shown an explosive get-off, great length and strength to dominate the trenches.



Charles is a tremendous size/speed prospect. In terms of fundamentals, he seems a bit raw and relies on his size and athleticism. He has active hands to cause batted passes and a motor to press through double teams. He has shown some bend when rushing the edge for his size. After developing for a year or two, Charles has a chance to be a draft pick after starting for multiple years.


Charles, who took multiple visits this summer, chose to stay home and play for the Florida State Seminoles over Ohio State, Texas, Georgia, and Miami. According to On3, Charles is ranked as the 58th overall recruit and fourth-best defensive lineman in the class. According to Maxpreps, Charles finished his junior season with 29 total tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks and 2 batted passes.


Outlook for Florida State

With the commitment of Charles, Florida State will still look for more recruits on the defensive line. Ourlads has Florida State with nine defensive linemen as draft eligibility (third-year players or more) and only one with less.

In the transfer portal era, schools must remain stocked with players to develop. When it comes to Florida State recruiting, they are on the outside looking in with five-star defensive lineman Justus Terry and four-star EDGE Jared Smith. Norvell may have to turn his attention to other uncommitted recruits like three-star DL Jarquez Carter and EDGE Mandrell Desir to help bolster their defensive line.


If they are unable to land more high school commitments on the defensive line, expect Norvell to attack the transfer portal to help bolster a room moving forward.
