COLLEGE FOOTBALL: NOV 18 Florida at Missouri

Florida State football has extended another offer in the transfer portal, and it’s another familiar foe, this time Florida Gators defensive lineman Chris McClellan:

McClellan, who stands 6’3 320 pounds, and is from North Tulsa, Oklahoma, was offered by Florida State out of high school, as well, but the blue-chip lineman didn’t show heavy interest. He eventually chose the Gators after taking official visits with the Alabama Crimson Tide, Ohio State Buckeyes, Oklahoma Sooners and USC Trojans.

He just officially went into the portal mid-morning, but already has offers from the Auburn Tigers, Colorado Buffaloes, Mississippi State Bulldogs, Missouri Tigers, and SMU Mustangs, in addition to FSU.
