Former Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson says he is transferring to Florida State, where he will have the chance to replace Jameis Winston.
In a statement to Fox Sports, Golson said Tuesday after much consideration he will spend his fifth year of eligibility with the Seminoles.
Golson graduated from Notre Dame on Sunday. He will be immediately eligible to play under NCAA graduate transfer rules. He will also immediately become the most accomplished quarterback on Florida State’s roster, with Winston gone to the NFL as the first pick in the draft.
Golson helped Notre Dame reach the 2013 BCS championship game in his first season as a starter. He missed the 2013 season because of an academic violation. He returned to Notre Dame last season and threw for 3,445 yards.
