Lyons arrived in Tallahassee in 2013, redshirting during the team's national championship season. He played in 11 games in 2014 as a reserve defensive back and special teamer, making three tackles.

After converting to linebacker in 2015, Lyons played in the first two games of last season before injuring his knee. He made seven tackles in the Seminoles' season-opening win over Texas State.
