Florida State pulls a stud from The Boot!

It may have taken longer than expected, but Mike Norvell’s Florida State Seminoles football program picked up a huge recruiting victory today when Destyn “Fatt” Hill announced via Instagram Live that he’s signing with the Seminoles over the Alabama Crimson Tide, Florida Gators, LSU Tigers, and Oklahoma Sooners:

Hill is a 4-star wide receiver (95 rating) from the state of Louisiana. He’s currently ranked as the 113th best player overall and considered a top-20 player at the receiver position. Hill, listed at 6’1, 200 pounds, had been considered an FSU lean ever since his visit to Tallahassee in January. Tomahawk Nation listed Hill as one of the trending targets for the Seminoles in our wide receiver recruiting article. Here are the initial thoughts NoleThruandThru provided on Hill’s game:

“Fatt” is a beast at receiver and is nearly impossible to cover on the outside. He is deceptively quick and has a natural feel for getting into open pockets. He has a tendency to use his body a bit too much for catches and isn’t the most athletic, but his strengths far exceed his areas of growth. He will likely be the most polished WR on FSU’s board and safest to project as a very productive player, and would immediately challenge for serious reps in the rotation. He’s a future NFL player.

Hill joins Joshua Burrell and Malik McClain as high school wide receiver signees for Florida State’s 2021 class, as well as former Kansas Jayhawks receiver Andrew Parchment. He’ll slot in as the highest rated prep recruit for #Tribe21. With Hill’s commitment, the Florida State Seminoles’ 2021 class should rise from the 30th spot into the top-25 (remember that ranking doesn’t include transfers).
