FSU football is active in the transfer portal again, and Michigan State junior transfer wide receiver Keon Coleman will be visiting Florida State this weekend, per his Twitter account.

He entered the transfer portal on Sunday, April 30th. The Seminoles will be his first visit since entering the transfer portal.

In case you missed it, UAB redshirt senior safety transfer Jaylen Key will also be officially visiting Florida State this weekend.

Coleman is listed at 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds and is originally from Opelousas, Louisiana. During the 2022 season with the Michigan State Spartans, he benefitted from a productive campaign where he led the team with 58 receptions for 798 yards and seven touchdowns.

Most notably, Michigan State quarterback Payton Thorne entered the transfer portal on Sunday. It seems as though Coleman wants to find a destination where he can feel comfortable in the offensive system. However, the talented pass catcher has not ruled out the possibility of returning to East Lansing in 2023.

But Florida State has become a transfer portal destination in college football, and it helps that head football coach Mike Norvell and company get the first opportunity to impress the wide receiver transfer. The Seminoles have already acquired nine transfer portal prospects thus far with tight ends Jaheim Bell and Kyle Morlock, interior offensive linemen Casey Roddick and Keiondre Jones, offensive tackle Jeremiah Byers, defensive tackles Darrell Jackson Jr. and Braden Fiske, defensive end Gilber Edmond, and cornerback Fentrell Cypress II.

While the Seminoles have quality receivers on their roster, such as Johnny Wilson, Winston Wright Jr., Kentron Poitier, Hykeem Williams, Vandrevius Jacobs, and others. FSU football could utilize another big-bodied receiver, who has breakaway speed and can highpoint the football to pair alongside 6’7β€³ Johnny Wilson, 6’6β€³ Kyle Morlock, 6’3β€³ Jaheim Bell, 6’3β€³ Kentron Poitier, and 6’3β€³ Darion Williamson.

It is scary to think about the possibilities quarterback Jordan Travis could have in this offensive system if the Seminoles find a way to obtain Coleman.
