Two transfers from Mississippi State granted immediate eligibility at Florida State


It was a pretty good day personnel-wise for the Florida State football program.

In early June, FSU confirmed the additions of defensive lineman Fabien Lovett and defensive back Jarrian Jones. It was expected that both players, transfers from Mississippi State, would seek immediate-eligibility waivers.

Thursday afternoon, FSU confirmed that Jones (pictured) and Lovett have each been granted a transfer waiver allowing for immediate eligibility in the 2020 season. That will leave both players with three years of eligibility remaining. Jones also has a redshirt season to use as well.

“We are fired up for Jarrian and Fabien to have this opportunity to compete this season,” first-year Florida State head football coach Mike Norvell said in a statement. “The entire Florida State family is grateful to the NCAA committee for their time considering these appeals for two great young men. Jarrian and Fabien are tremendous football players who have already had a positive impact on our program, and I’m looking forward to seeing that impact continue to grow.”
