Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher was in Amelia Island (Fla.) Tuesday for the ACC meeting and discussed meeting with Notre Dame transfer QB Everett Golson Monday. Fisher clarified that discussions are ongoing, but that he would never guarantee a QB a starting job.
Jimbo Fisher met w/Everett Golson Monday. "We're negotiating. He's a great young man."— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) May 12, 2015
Jimbo was asked if bringing in Golson would cause a problem with other QBs. 'No. You have to be upfront with everybody. ...' more— Tom D'Angelo (@tomdangelo44) May 12, 2015
Jimbo: "We’re going to do what gives us the best chance to be successful." #FSU— Tom D'Angelo (@tomdangelo44) May 12, 2015
Jimbo Fisher: "I’m not making the decision (Golson is). (If he picks FSU) then we’ll talk & go through it"— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) May 12, 2015
Jimbo said he would never tell a player he's a stater. "It’s a competition no matter what. Let him earn his way through it." #FSU— Tom D'Angelo (@tomdangelo44) May 12, 2015
Golson also had an overnight visit with the Florida Gators Monday evening through Tuesday afternoon. He would be eligible to play immediately, but there could be a potential holdup at an SEC school.
Previously, it was reported that Florida State was Golson's favorite. His potential joining of the team doesn't come without questions, however.
