One of the more high-profile grad transfers (if not the biggest) on the market, Everett Golson, may visit more schools before making up his mind, as various reports suggest.
Golson, who decided a few weeks ago to transfer from Notre Dame, has many suitors hot on his trail, including Alabama and Florida State. There was thought that Golson would announce his intentions today; but that of course did not happen.
Eventually, Golson will select a new school to matriculate to, but he apparently is in no hurry at the moment.
ESPN’s Brett McMurphy had this to say via Twitter:
QB Everett Golson won’t make decision today, may visit more schools, sources told @ESPN

McMurphy added on ESPN.com:
Last week, Golson visited Florida State, Florida and Georgia in consecutive days. Alabama also wants Golson, a source told ESPN. Those schools, along with South Carolina, UCLA and LSU, were among 10 to 12 schools that Golson provided to Notre Dame’s compliance office as a possible landing spot for the transfer, a source said.
Florida State is considered the “front-runner” to land Golson, a source told ESPN’s Joe Schad.
SEC sources told ESPN.com’s Chris Low they were skeptical SEC commissioner Mike Slive or commissioner-elect Greg Sankey would grant Golson the waiver needed to attend an SEC school because he didn’t meet all of that conference’s graduate-transfer rules.
It’s been a long-winding, circuitous road that Golson has taken in his college football career and one with plenty of ups and downs. Soon enough we’ll know how the final chapter of his career ends.
