FSU got some good news Sunday concerning the recruitment of 2021 defensive end prospect Kyran Montgomery from Indianapolis (Ind.) Pike High School. Montgomery, 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, posted on Twitter that the top three schools he is considering for his future college home consist of Florida State, Minnesota and Missouri.

Mike Norvell and his staff extended their offer to Montgomery at the end of June. He is also reported to have offers from Arizona State, Illinois, Indiana and Penn State.

Montgomery is rated as a three-star prospect by 247Sports, which also has him ranked as the 30th-best weakside DE in the country and the 6th-best overall prospect in Indiana for the class of 2021. The rising senior was clear in his tweet that despite the fact he does have a top three, his recruitment is still wide open.

Norvell and company also got some good news concerning their recruitment of the top-rated cornerback in the country. De’Jahn Warren from Lackawanna Junior College in Pennsylvania announced that he is now considering just seven schools for his future college home and Florida State is on that list.

The other schools in Warren’s top seven are Alabama, Georgia, Maryland, Penn State, Oklahoma and Tennessee. 247Sports has the Maryland native rated as a four-star prospect and the best JUCO cornerback prospect in the county and the nation’s second-best overall JUCO prospect.
