Former ND quarterback Everett Golson headed to FSU
During recent weeks, many schools have been discussed as the possible universities where Golson would end up, including Florida University and the University of Georgia.
Golson's statement, originally posted here, reads as follows:
"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."
Golson finished his career at Notre Dame with 41 touchdown passes and 20 interceptions.
Florida State is not a scheduled opponent on Notre Dame's 2015 schedule so, unless they meet in a bowl game, they will not face their previous quarterback in his final college season.
