Florida State landed another commitment this Saturday, this time in the form running back of Jashaun Corbin, a transfer from Texas A&M originally by way of Melbourne (Fla.) Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy. He was previously committed to FSU but decided to follow Jimbo Fisher to A&M and now in his words he’s coming home.
Corbin was a four-star recruit that burst onto the scene at A&M rushing for 357 yards at 5.7 yards per carry for A&M during his freshman season. He also returned 14 kickoffs for 422 yards and a 100-yard touchdown.
His sophomore year was cut short following a season-ending hamstring injury in the second game of the season vs. Clemson so he should be eligible immediately provided the NCAA acknowledges his redshirt.
FSU now has at least two guaranteed scholarship running backs going into 2020 with the signing of four-star recruit Lawrance Toafili and the commitment of Jashaun Corbin. If Anthony Grant and Khalan Laborn can get right what was looking to be a position of major weakness is now a position of strength.
