Defensive End

FSU will have some returning experience at the defensive end position in 2024. Patrick Payton and Byron Turner Jr. signed with The Battle's End Collective. They have some young talent like Jaden Jones, Dante Anderson, Lamont Green Jr., Aaron Hester, DD Holmes, and others that could try to crack the rotation with Gilber Edmond entering the transfer portal.

FSU has Marvin Jones Jr. in the fold from the transfer portal but likely need 1-2 more players to feel comfortable with depth at the position. FSU had three defensive ends to visit over the past few days. Tomiwa Durojaiye, Zion Young, and Sione Lolohea bring experience to the position. The latter was teammates with DJ Uiagalelei at Oregon State. The others hail from West Virginia University and Michigan State, respectively. It'll be interesting to see if they can land at least one of these guys in the coming days.
