#Tribe19 wide receiver will not attend FSU

Class of 2019 wide receiver and Florida State signee Maurice Goolsby announced earlier this morning that he wouldn’t be attending the university this summer. Instead, Goolsby will focus on baseball instead of football while looking for a new school to play for.

Regardless of the reason, this doesn’t reflect well on head coach Willie Taggart and his staff. The only offensive skill player he signed in his first full season as FSU’s coach will wind up never playing a snap for the ‘Noles. With the loss of Goolsby, Florida State has just nine scholarship wide receivers heading into fall camp.

The 6-foot-5 prospect is the first member of #Tribe19 to officially not make it to campus. He originally committed to the Seminoles back in April of 2018, 10 months before he would ink his LOI. Goolsby had a quiet senior season as he dealt with some injuries. He finished 2018 with 17 catches for 345 yards (20.3 YPC) while adding 12 tackles for loss on the other side of the ball.

The Dunnellon native was ranked as the No. 458 overall prospect, the No. 54 WR, and the No. 55 player in the state of Florida by the 247Sports Composite Ratings, earning him a three-star distinction. We wish him the best as he chooses to focus on another path.


Goolsby will be starting off his college baseball career at the JUCO level.
