Per Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman, Former Notre Dame Starting Quarterback Everett Golson is transferring to the now Jameis Winston-less Florida State University.
“This past weekend has been a defining moment in my life as I am proud to say I am a graduate of the University of Notre Dame,” Golson said in a statement to Fox Sports. “The support I’ve received there over the past four years has helped strengthen my integrity, wisdom and character. I would like to thank all of the coaches who spent time speaking with me these past few weeks and considered adding me to their football programs. Their interest and sincerity was truly humbling. After much thought and careful consideration, I will utilize my fifth year of eligibility to join the Florida State University Seminoles. To coach Jimbo Fisher, the Florida State football team, staff, alumni and fans, thank you for allowing me to become part of the Seminoles family. I can’t wait to get started.”—-
After flying out of the gates last season, Golson’s Fighting Irish team wound up losing five of the final six regular season games, and Everett was replaced by sophomore Malik Zaire.
In his career at Notre Dame, Golson threw for 5,850 yards, 41 touchdowns and 20 interceptions … but, now, with only one year of college eligibility left: he’ll find himself competing for the FSU starting gig against redshirt junior Sean Maguire.
Long story short: this is gonna be interesting…
