Florida State and head coach Mike Norvell added another piece to the offense: UCLA transfer tight end Jordan Wilson. Over the weekend, Wilson committed to FSU, which satisfies a team need: help at the tight end position. Earlier in the offseason, Florida State lost veteran tight end Tre’ McKitty — 50 career receptions — to Georgia.
I’ll never question why God put me on the path that he did and I’m forever grateful for the doors he opened along the way. #Committed #OneTribe 🍢 pic.twitter.com/AYYoSj5jfn

During his three seasons with UCLA, Wilson caught 25 passes for 244 yards (9.8 yards per catch) and two touchdowns. Wilson appeared in 34 games during his career with the Bruins; he’s eligible immediately next season as a graduate transfer.
Wilson can work as a threat in the middle of the field, which should open loosen things up for Tamorrion Terry on the perimeter. As a junior this season, Wilson caught seven passes for 72 yards.
Multiple times now this offseason, Florida State has added a Power Five transfer. Last month, FSU landed impact defensively tackle Fabien Lovett from Mississippi State. Back in April, FSU also picked up a commitment from former Baylor linebacker Deonte Williams.
Outside of the Power Five, Florida State landed graduate transfer Meiko Dotson from FAU. Dotson led the FBS in 2019 with nine interceptions.
