Florida State Seminoles offensive lineman Jalen Goss has entered the transfer portal:

Goss, who struggled to add the requisite weight for a college tackle, wasn’t expected to see significant playing time going forward, so the move makes sense for both parties.

From Goss’s Florida State bio:


Played in eight games…Seminole Scholar… in addition to appearances on offense, also blocked on kicking unit…FSU kickers made eight field goals and 26 PATs in 2020.


Appeared in all 13 games…ACC Honor Roll…served primarily on PAT unit, helping block for FSU to successfully convert 46-of-47 attempts.


Worked with FSU’s scout team while redshirting.


Long offensive tackle ranked as a consensus three-star prospect … rated as the No. 69 overall prospect in Georgia by ESPN, 84th in the state by 247Sports and 91st in the state by Rivals … known for his large frame, tremendous reach and polished technique at the point of attack … as a senior helped pave the way for a Lowndes offense that set a single-season school record with 627 points scored and compiled more than 2,700 yards and 55 touchdowns on the ground … helped guide the Lowndes High School offense to become the 60th team in Georgia history to eclipse 600 points in a season … named first team AAAAAAA all-state by the Georgia Sports Writers Association and the Atlanta Journal Constitution … attended same high school as recent Florida State standout Telvin Smith … chose FSU over several scholarship offers, including the Florida Gators, Miami (FL) Hurricanes, Auburn Tigers, and Michigan Wolverines.
