Florida State picked up a commitment from three-star receiver Joshua Burrell on Friday evening.
The 6-foot-2, 208-pound Burrell chose FSU over a few dozen offers, including Virginia Tech, Tennessee, Georgia Tech, Louisville, North Carolina State, Syracuse and Virginia. 247Sports also has the rising senior ranked as the third-best overall prospect in South Carolina and the 75th-best wide receiver prospect in the class of 2021. Burrell told The State in Columbia, S.C., that he plans to enroll at FSU in January.
Burrell, who is from Blythewood, S.C., is the eighth FSU commitment from the class of 2021 and the first receiver. He had 57 catches for 950 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2019 as a junior.
Looking at Burrell’s highlights, he is a physical receiver: He uses his frame to fight for passes and goes up for the ball well.
Burrell joins quarterback Luke Altmyer and center Jake Slaughter among the FSU offense’s 2021 commitments.
