Florida State has officially announced the addition of grad transfer offensive lineman Devontay Taylor.

The 6-foot-4, 305-pound Taylor helped Mitchell High reach the Class 6A playoffs before signing with Florida International. At FIU, he started 16 times and was an honorable-mention all-conference selection this season.

As a grad transfer, he’ll be eligible immediately and could contribute on an offensive line that has struggled over the last few seasons.

“We are excited about the addition of Devontay Taylor into the Seminole family,” FSU coach Mike Norvell said. “Devontay is a recent college graduate and will provide us a talented playmaker to the offensive line position group. He has played in 32 games throughout his collegiate career after originally signing as a 240-pound defensive lineman. Devontay will be immediately eligible and will provide great competition on the offensive front. We are looking forward to having him as part of the program.”
