The former Florida State quarterback is transferring to FCS to continue his college career
More than a thousand players across the country have entered the NCAA’s transfer portal since the winter window opened on Dec. 5. Every program in this sport deals with elimination in one way or another.
Florida State has had 13 players selected for portal testing since the regular season ended. A pair of former Seminoles have already found transfer destinations.
Former FSU quarterback George Wilson Jr. announced Saturday that he is continuing his college career at Campbell University. The War Camels finished 5-6 last season and compete in the FCS.
Wilson Jr. originally signed with Florida State over South Carolina, Auburn and others during the early signing period as a member of the class of 2021. He redshirted as a true freshman while working out and participating on the scout team. Wilson Jr.’s role hasn’t changed much over the past year. He played 16 total snaps on defense and special teams in three games — Duquesne, Georgia Tech and Louisiana — and was not credited with any stats.

The Virginia native will look to make an immediate impact for the War Camels, who are missing their top five sack leaders from last season. Wilson Jr. was a two-sport athlete at the prep level, splitting his time between the football field and the basketball court.
With Wilson Jr. moving on, the Seminoles have plenty of talent to use on the edge, including redshirt junior Jared Vers, redshirt senior Dennis Briggs, redshirt junior Derrick McLendon II, redshirt sophomore Patrick Payton, redshirt sophomore Byron Turner and redshirt freshman Aaron Hester and redshirt freshman Dante Anderson. The program signed four-star Lamont Green Jr. and three-star JUCO Jaden Jones from the high school and junior college levels.
