FSU football is hosting a lot of top talent from the 2021 recruiting cycle this weekend. The Noles added its first 2021 commitment for Mike Norvell in Joshua Farmer.
FSU football did a great job of getting lots of top recruits on campus for its “Junior Day” event over the weekend.
The event will help Mike Norvell and staff build those relationships as they look to make up ground while they try to put a bow on its 2020 recruiting class.
Their first 2021 commitment of the Mike Norvell era came through when defensive end Joshua Farmer announced his pledge for the Noles.
Farmer stands 6’5″ 250 pounds and hails from Gadsden County High School in Apalachicola, Florida. He holds offers from several schools but he’s not rated by composite rankings.

It was a nice start for Mike Norvell as Farmer is likely a player who’ll get more offers as he continues to develop his senior year.
The commitment also comes at a position of need for the Noles as they need defensive ends who can pass rush.
It was one of the glaring weaknesses of the FSU defense in 2019, and is still a position of need for the 2020 recruiting cycle.
Farmer told Noles247 he wanted to help build the 2021 class up and get FSU football back to where it’s supposed to be.
The Noles had two 2021 commitments before Mike Norvell was hired, so Farmer makes the third as long as they all stick.
Farmer’s commitment could help the Noles establish some much-needed momentum for the 2021 recruiting cycle.
