Former Florida State, 5-star WR transferring to Penn State
Former Florida State wide receiver and five-star prospect George Campbell has found a new home in State College.
Wednesday afternoon, Campbell announced through social media that he was leaving Florida State and would finish his career at Penn State.
“It’s no secret that the last four years have been full of highs and lows for me, but I’ve always been told that ‘tough times don’t last, tough people do.’ While I will forever be grateful to Florida State for the opportunity to be a Seminole, I am excited to take the next step in my journey,” Campbell wrote.
“To my Nole brothers, it’s not goodbye it’s see you later. I love y’all boys and wish you the best. For those who have supported me every step of the way, I appreciate you from the bottom of my heart. With that being said my journey is nowhere near over yet and I am excited to announce that I will be writing the next chapter of my life at THE Penn State University. I am thrilled to be a part of the Nittany Lion family and am thankful to the coaching staff and players for accepting me with open arms!”
Campbell has suffered from injuries throughout his career with the Seminoles and has never gotten into much of a rhythm on the field. In three seasons in Tallahassee, he’s appeared in 21 games and has made 13 catches for 206 yards.
The receiver has yet to score a touchdown in his collegiate career.
Campbell does provide some much-needed depth at the wide receiver position for Penn State, which lost half of its top six pass-catchers from a season ago. Campbell will be a graduate transfer and will be immediately eligible in 2019.
