TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Florida State's transfer quarterback Jordan Travis has been granted eligibility to play in the 2019 football season.

“We are excited for Jordan and thankful to the people who examined his situation and reason for his transfer,” head coach Willie Taggart said. “Specifically, we want to thank FSU’s compliance office, the Committee for Legislative Relief, the ACC faculty athletics representatives and the University of Louisville for their cooperation. This has been a long but deliberate process, and we are happy to achieve closure on Jordan’s situation.”

Florida State football officials say, Travis is a redshirt freshman with four years of eligibility remaining.

He began his career at Louisville, appearing in three games as a true freshman in 2018.

The West Palm Beach native was 4-for-14 passing for 17 yards and one touchdown and gained 40 yards on eight carries for the Cardinals.

At The Benjamin School, Travis was the 2017 FHSAA 3-A Player of the Year and Palm Beach Player of the Year and was rated as the nation’s No. 24 dual-threat quarterback in the 2018 class, according to FSU.

The final decision from the faculty athletics representatives was communicated to FSU on Monday.

Florida State opens its 2019 season against Boise State in Jacksonville on Aug. 31 at 7 p.m.
