Florida State football’s starting tight end Camren McDonald announced today that he is returning for his senior season at FSU in 2021. In his tweet, the tight end wrote, “Transformative three years. Honored to wear this uniform. One more year FSU.”

McDonald was the Seminoles’ third leading receiver in 2020. The California native hauled in 23 catches for 263 yards. He also caught two touchdowns, one at Miami and one against North Carolina. He started all nine games at tight end for Florida State.

It was a breakout season for McDonald, as he previously only had six catches in his first two years at Florida State. Before the season, he talked about how important the tight end was in Mike Norvell’s offense and how excited he was to play in the system. He showed off that excitement early in the season, hauling in 10 catches for 99 yards in FSU’s first two games of the season.

With McKenzie Milton coming into the fold at Florida State, McDonald’s role in the offense could expand even more next season. McDonald’s experience and leadership alone is a big boost to have back for Chris Thomsen’s tight end room.
