FSU football coaches had a big priority for the 2022 recruiting cycle, and that was improving in the trenches on both sides of the ball.

Although improving under the tuteledge of Alex Atkins, the offensive line was still a unit that needed to get better through the high school ranks and a select few from the transfer portal. FSU coaches added six offensive linemen from the high school ranks and four from the transfer portal.

The latest addition from the transfer portal was former South Carolina offensive lineman Jazston Turnetine. FSU announced the addition Tuesday after Turnetine had announced he was down to FSU and Michigan State for his two finalists last week.

Here’s what Mike Norvell had to say about Turnetine via press release:

"“Jazston has tremendous size with great power and athleticism,” Norvell said. “His starting experience in big games and his skillset immediately increases the competition among our offensive line group. Ayobami brings incredible length, explosiveness and playmaking ability. His upcoming redshirt season will allow him to focus on growing his fundamentals and technique, and the sky is the limit for him as he develops within our program. We are enthusiastic about the addition of these two and believe they will both have a great impact.”"

Jazston Turnetine checks in at 6’7″ and 335 pounds, with 10 starts in 18 games while at South Carolina.
