Lyons has been a priority for the FSU staff for over a year. He was first offered by Florida State in April of 2020. Coach Odell Haggins and the Seminole staff made sure he knew just how much they wanted him to be a ‘Nole.
Tomahawk Nation released a scouting report after his commitment, including a video. Here’s an excerpt:
New school DT prospect to attack the space race. Lyons is an up-the-field penetrator who has an explosive get-off and fits well in a one-gap scheme. I anticipate the FSU defense becoming more one gap so Lyons seems like a natural fit. Long and explosive are great traits to find in a new school DT prospect.
