Florida State running back Jashaun Corbin, a transfer from Texas A&M, has been granted a transfer waiver allowing for immediate eligibility in the 2020 season, it was announced Tuesday.

“We are grateful to the NCAA for this decision and to Texas A&M for supporting this process,” coach Mike Norvell said. “We’re excited for Jashaun and the opportunity he’s going to have to impact this program on and off the field.”

Corbin, who will be a redshirt sophomore in 2020, appeared in 14 games at Texas A&M and totaled 1,025 all-purpose yards, including 483 rushing yards, 441 kickoff return yards and 101 receiving yards. He started the first two games of 2019 before a season-ending injury, rushing for a career-high 103 yards and one touchdown in the season opener while also catching a touchdown.

“I’d like to start by giving all glory to God,” Corbin said. “I’m thankful for the opportunities He has given me and for this opportunity to play at Florida State. Thank you to everyone in compliance for working on my behalf and to my coaches for their support throughout this process. I also want to say thank you to Texas A&M for making this possible. I’m looking forward to being a big contributor to the team this upcoming season.”

In 2018, the Rockledge, Fla., native was named to the SEC All-Freshman Team after leading the Aggies with 422 kickoff return yards and adding 346 yards on 61 carries and 85 yards on 10 receptions. He was a consensus four-star recruit coming out of Rockledge High School, where he accumulated 2,252 all-purpose yards and 23 touchdowns his senior year.

    I was really impressed with Corbin in the three practices we saw this spring. His knee looked good and he could make an impact on offense and special teams.

    Yes, very much so. While you’d like to see him in a couple of 11-on-11-scrimmage situations, before making bold predictions… I’ll say this: He looks very much like a Florida State starter. He’s very solidly built, with a powerful base, and he looks to be fluid in the inside drills and other live situations.

    I think this announcement solves one position question.

    We go from walkons starting in the Sun Bowl to what could be an attractive depth chart if Laborn and/or Grant are healthy too.
