Hill’s enrollment at FSU is delayed

Florida State’s top signee from the 2021 class will not be joining the team.

Four-star receiver Destyn Hill signed in February but his “enrollment is delayed due to a personal matter. With respect to his family’s privacy, we are looking forward to him joining our program in the future,” a school spokesperson told the Osceola.

It is not immediately clear when Hill may enroll at FSU.

Hill was the No. 5 player in Louisiana in the 247Sports Composite and among the top 100 players in the nation by the various recruiting services. In 2020, he helped New Orleans Edna Karr High to the state playoffs with 33 receptions for 806 yards and 15 touchdowns. He also had 54 catches for 1,047 yards and 14 touchdowns as Edna Karr won the 2019 state title.

The Seminoles’ receiving haul was viewed as a strength of the 2021 class. Joshua Burrell and Malik McClain enrolled early and impressed with their size and athleticism in spring drills. But the addition of Hill was expected to add another difference-maker as the FSU coaching staff revamps a position group that had been plagued by inconsistency in 2020.

FSU updated its 2021 roster on Seminoles.com on Thursday, including some new arrivals like Notre Dame transfer Dillan Gibbons (6-4, 309), Kansas transfer Andrew Parchment (6-2, 180) and junior college transfer Koby Gross (6-1, 240). Among the newcomers on defense include Patrick Payton (6-5, 210) and Shambre Jackson (6-3, 255).

Another addition is linebacker Cortez Andrews, a Tallahassee Godby High standout who played at Maryland. Andrews is listed at 6-1, 244 pounds.
