Former UCLA Bruins TE Jordan Wilson has found his new home for 2020, landing with the Florida State Seminoles under new head coach Mike Norvell.

Wilson entered the transfer portal in January of this year and finally landed in Tallahassee. He appeared in 32 games with the Bruins since the 2016 season, catching just 25 passes for 244 yards.

No discredit to him, considering the TE Factory that has been UCLA over the past few years, but he just never quite saw enough of the field to garner much more than a spotty role in the lineup. He ventures to FSU who lost their own starting tight end Tre McKitty to transfer as well.

Wilson is 6’4, 240 pounds and did see his fair share of action on the field, but those came in more run sets than anything else, seeing just 43 career targets. He’ll be eligible to play immediately after graduating and transferring over with his degree.

He was a three-star right end recruit from Nashville, Tennessee when he originally signed on with UCLA. Wilson ranked as the country’s 37th-best tight end prospect for the class of 2016. Devin Asiasi was third in that class, a class that saw players like Asiasi, Albert Okwuegbunam, Thad Moss and Irv Smith all make the NFL leap.

We at Bruins Nation wish you the best, Jordan! Do big things in the ACC!
