Florida State lands transfer quarterback DJ Uiagalelei

Former Clemson and Oregon State quarterback DJ Uiagalelei has committed to Florida State, he told ESPN in a phone interview on Monday.

Uiagalelei said he committed to head coach Mike Norvell on Monday afternoon, one day after FSU shifted its focus to prioritizing adding him to the roster.

Uiagalelei had also been exploring the NFL, as he said he took no other college visits; he told ESPN that FSU had been his priority and goal all along. He'd visited there more than two weeks ago and waited for things to come together.

"That's where I wanted to go the whole time," Uiagalelei told ESPN.
