Former Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson will transfer to Florida State
TALLAHASSEE – The unusual football career of Everett Golson will continue in Florida.
On Tuesday the former Notre Dame quarterback announced in a statement to ESPN that he will transfer to Florida State for the 2015 season.
Golson spent three years at Notre Dame and graduated from the school this past weekend. He will go to Tallahassee with one more year of eligibility remaining.
While not official it is thought that Golson will be a front-runner to replace former Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston who was the No. 1 overall pick in the draft a few years back.
During his time in South Bend Golson had plenty of ups and downs for the Irish. In 2012 he helped to lead the Irish to a perfect regular season and an appearance in the BCS National Championship Game. Fortunes turned south in 2013 when Golson was on academic suspension for the entire season.
After getting readmitted into Notre Dame Golson took back his starting job and his 2014 reflected his Irish career. While helping Notre Dame to a 6-0 start Golson struggled with turnovers as he threw 14 interceptions along with eight fumbles. He was replaced in the season finale by Malik Zaire and then split time with him in the Music City Bowl which Notre Dame knocked off LSU.
For his career a Notre Dame Golson finished with 5,850 yards passing with 41 touchdowns compared to 20 interceptions. He also rushed for 581 yards and 14 touchdowns.
