Back in December, running back Jashaun Corbin made a big decision about the future of his college football career. The Rockledge, Fla. native is heading back to his home state to play for Florida State.
Corbin was a four-star recruit and the No. 261 overall player in the 2018 recruiting class, per 247Sports. The site’s composite rankings slotted him in at No. 8 among all-purpose backs, and No. 49 in the state of Florida.
“I’m coming home,” Corbin declared back on Dec. 28 when he officially announced his transfer destination. Now, he’ll be able to play for the ‘Noles this fall.
College football insider Bruce Feldman reports that he has been granted a waiver to play immediately, after leaving Texas A&M. This decision comes after he appeared in just two games for the Aggies this past season. It is definitely good news for Mike Norvell, who begins his first year as head coach at FSU this fall.
#FSU RB Jashaun Corbin, a transfer from #TAMU, has been granted a transfer waiver allowing for immediate eligibility in the 2020 season. The redshirt sophomore appeared in 14 games at Texas A&M and totaled 1,025 all-purpose yards.

About the only consistent performer for the ‘Noles over the last three years was star back Cam Akers, who is now off to the NFL. Jashaun Corbin should be in place to try and pick up some of the slack.
He was pretty productive as a true freshman for Texas A&M. He played 12 games in Texas A&M, rushing 61 times for 346 yards and a touchdown, and caught 10 passes for 85 more yards.
Last fall, before leaving the Aggies, he played in just two games. He totaled 137 yards on 35 carries, and had 16 receiving yards. He scored two touchdowns from scrimmage.
