A loss of depth in the FSU tight end room.

Florida State Seminoles football tight end Jordan Wilson, who transferred to Tallahassee from UCLA this summer, is out for the year.

Head coach Mike Norvell confirmed the news on Monday.

Wilson had been lauded for his blocking ability, and had figured to be a significant part of the tight end room.

From our scouting report:

Wilson plays the TE position with an old-school mindset. He’s willing to get his hands dirty as an in-line blocker. You’ll notice he’s more comfortable running routes, but Wilson’s a capable blocker. Wilson bends well in his lower half, but plays a little upright at times and his base can get wide. Against defensive ends and linebackers he still manages a stalemate or movement, which is good to see. Wilson will be asked to play as an in-line blocker and should fit that role nicely. He’ll need to continue improving, but shows hope as his PFF run-blocking grades have climbed from 2017 to 2019.
