DT transfer Fabien Lovett makes it official, signs with FSU football

Hours after the Seminoles landed a commitment from wide receiver Joshua Burrell, former Mississippi State defensive lineman Fabien Lovett announced he has followed through on his commitment and signed with the Seminoles.

Lovett committed to the Seminoles in mid-April, but there had been speculation in recent weeks that he might be wavering on that decision. On Friday night, he put those rumors to rest.

The 6-foot-4, 315-pound Lovett originally signed with Mississippi State out of Olive Branch, Miss., in 2018 after racking up 81 tackles and 25.0 tackles for loss (6.5 sacks) as a senior. He was a three-star prospect but one of the top recruits in the state of Mississippi.
