The Florida State Seminoles continued a busy week, welcoming their fifth 2025 recruit of the week with offensive lineman Peyton Joseph joining the Seminoles. A 6-foot-3, 309-pound lineman from Houston County High in Warner Robbins, Ga., Joseph is the 10th Seminoles recruit and the seventh consensus four-star recruit for the team.



Who Is Peyton Joseph?

Simply put Jospeph is a beast. Playing with violent hands and a physicality that is fun to watch. He's disciplined in his blocking and rarely gets caught overreaching for blocks. He seeks out defenders and shows a solid ability to shed his initial defender and move to the second level to engage another. He sets his feet well to establish the edge and is hard for defenders to get past. He's versatile enough to play anywhere along the offensive line, however, a move to the interior is likely when he arrives in Tallahassee, Fla.



Joseph chose Florida State over Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Auburn. With his commitment, the Seminoles move to No. 9 in the country for the 2025 recruiting class as well as second behind Clemson in the Atlantic Coast Conference. His choice of playing at Florida State also allows him to play alongside his cousin, current Seminole TJ Ferguson.


The commitment demonstrates that coach Mike Norvell, offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Alex Atkins and the rest of the staff are hard at work as the Seminoles bolster the offensive line with quality players.



Outlook for the Seminoles

With Joseph, the Seminoles continue to build depth with quality players on the offensive line. With the ability to protect the quarterback on passing plays as well as open running lanes, players like Joseph should fit right in and give the Seminoles depth early and players that can grow into starters sooner rather than later. As the saying goes, iron sharpens iron, and practices where Solomon Thomas and Joseph are going up against fellow 2025 commits Myron Charles and Kevin Wynn are going to be great to see.


For the Seminoles, they continue to build the trenches, adding their second offensive lineman, the team has two defensive linemen committed already. Joseph provides the Seminoles with a versatile piece for the trench warfare at the line of scrimmage. He plays with the nastiness and physicality that coaches want along the offensive line. He's got solid footwork and agility to be able to pull and move to the second level. Has the versatility to line up anywhere along the line but could be a natural fit at guard when he gets to Tallahassee. He's disciplined in his approach and shows the ability to be quick-footed and deliver a solid punch at defenders.



The Seminoles have their coach in Norvell. He and his staff continuously seek out the right players to help them "Keep CLIMBing" and with the addition of Joseph, they continue that process. While the offensive line doesn't always get the appreciation, Joseph and fellow 2025 commit Thomas are poised to be pivotal in the growth of the offense and the protection of the quarterback.


It also shows that in the short time that Norvell and his staff have been in place, the culture being established is being recognized by top-quality recruits across the country.
