Notre Dame transfer Everett Golson visits Florida

Notre Dame transfer quarterback Everett Golson was in Florida to visit the Seminoles on Monday and he remained in the state on Tuesday to make a second visit to another high profile school.

The fifth year senior, who will be immediately eligible as a graduate transfer, took a trip to Gainesville to see what the SEC school had to offer, according to Sports Illustrated.

Jim McElwain is not in a strong position quarterback wise as sophomore Treon Harris and redshirt freshman Will Grier don’t have much experience and don’t pose a huge threat to any of the vaunted SEC defenses.

The Myrtle Beach, SC native would give the Gators a clear upgrade but also could have a problem with eligibility due to the conference’s rule on academic suspensions. The rule includes language that consists of banning players who had “significant disciplinary issues” at their previous program.

Golson was suspended for the entire 2013 season due to an academic fraud issue, returned to the Irish starting lineup the following season and struggled with turnover issues (20 picks).

The mobile quarterback also led the Irish to an undefeated regular season and the National Championship Game a couple seasons ago so his experience in big games should not be undervalued.

Golson is considering multiple schools, including Alabama, South Carolina and an unknown Pac-12 school, and Notre Dame is also restricting the senior from moving onto any of their 2015 opponents.
