OG Charlton gives FSU another big commitment

FSU coach Mike Norvell has nailed down another big commitment towards his 2022 recruiting class. This afternoon offensive guard Kanaya Charlton committed to Florida State while on the second day of his official visit to Tallahassee.

Charlton, who is 6-foot-5 and 340 pounds, has been on the FSU campus several times this summer. The Brunswick (Ga.) High School product participated in the Seminoles’ Elite Camp on June 5, where he had the opportunity to work out for offensive line coach Alex Atkins and Norvell.

This is third commitment FSU secured from a prospect on an official visit this weekend. Last night defensive lineman Trevion Williams from Crystal Springs (Miss.) High school gave his pledge to Norvell, as did offensive lineman Qae’shon Sapp from Lee County (GA) High School.

“Sapp and Charlton are both future guards,” said Osceola Recruiting Analyst Charles Fishbein who watched both players take part at FSU Elite Camp. “They actually moved better than we would have thought. Sapp is a big man but Charlton is even bigger. He moves very well for a big guy. We feel that while Charlton could probably play tackle he projects as a guard at the major college level. He is a big, wide-bodied lineman who is going to be tough to get around. He weighs around 340-350. If he can get to around 320 pounds, Charlton will be very effective from the inside.”

FSU now has the 11th-best recruiting class in the country and the second-best class in the ACC according to 247Sports after the addition of the trio of prospects to the Seminoles’ 2022 class, which features 12 commitments.
