A Baltimore native and former Mount Carmel standout is headed to Florida State.

Five-star defensive end Joshua Kaindoh, who decommited from Maryland in November, committed to Florida State on Friday night, he announced on Twitter.

"Thanks be to God, my family and friends for their continuous support throughout this difficult process, and to all the other Universities that gave me the opportunity to further my education & playing career," he wrote.

Kaindoh, a Baltimore native and former Mount Carmel standout, wrote that he will enroll early for the spring semester.

In April, Kaindoh announced that he was committing to the Terps.

"Without further ado, I am very excited and eager to say that I am committed to THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND!" he wrote on Twitter, pinning the message. He included a photo with the words "THE FUTURE IS SET. MY COMMITMENT IS MADE."

After taking his official visit to Maryland on Oct. 1, Kaindoh traveled from IMG Academy (Fla.), where he has played for the past two seasons, to Florida State for an official visit two weeks later.

Kaindoh, rated as the second-best weakside defensive end and the No. 21 overall prospect in the nation according to the composite rankings, picked the Seminoles over Penn State, Alabama and Georgia among at least 30 reported scholarship offers.
