Former Louisville quarterback Jordan Travis has found his transfer destination — and it’s close to home.
The Florida native announced Wednesday that he is headed to Florida State, according to the Tallahassee Democrat. He picked the Seminoles over Central Florida, South Florida and Florida Atlantic and has four years left to play.
He showed promise during a three-appearance stint with the Cardinals as a true freshman in 2018, but Louisville announced he was transferring in November. He made his debut in the Indiana State game. Against Georgia Tech, he went 4-for-9 passing for 71 yards, with a touchdown and an interception. He also carried five times for 48 yards.
A graduate of the Benjamin School in North Palm Beach, Travis was the Palm Beach County High School Player of the Year as a senior and a three-star prospect according to 247sports.com’s composite rankings.
Louisville currently has only three scholarship quarterbacks for 2019 — Malik Cunningham and Jawon Pass, who split starting duty last season, and incoming freshman Evan Conley, who committed to the Cardinals on Signing Day.
The Travis family is familiar with Florida State, a fellow ACC program. His older brother, Devon, played baseball at FSU from 2010 through 2012 and is now with the Toronto Blue Jays.
According to the Tallahassee Democrat, it’s unknown whether Travis will be eligible immediately via a hardship waiver from the NCAA or if he will have to sit out next season.
With the Seminoles, Travis will add depth to a position that desperately needs it. Deondre Francois’ future is up in the air as he weighs a decision to play professionally or return for his senior season. Sam Howell flipped his commitment from FSU to North Carolina. FSU has just one assured quarterback returning next season in redshirt sophomore James Blackman.
