Florida State running back Jashaun Corbin will be allowed to play immediately after transferring from Texas A&M.

The school announced the NCAA’s approval of the transfer waiver on Tuesday. Corbin will be a redshirt sophomore in the 2020 season.

“We are grateful to the NCAA for this decision and to Texas A&M for supporting this process,” head coach Mike Norvell said in a news release. “We’re excited for Jashaun and the opportunity he’s going to have to impact this program on and off the field.”

Corbin, a Florida native, played in 12 games as a freshman in 2018 and was named to the SEC All-Freshman team after leading the Aggies with 422 kickoff return yards and averaging 30.1 yards per return. He also ran for 346 yards on 61 carries and added 85 yards on 10 receptions.

In the 2019 season, he played in two games before sustaining a season-ending hamstring injury but scored two touchdowns.

“I’m looking forward to being a big contributor to the team this upcoming season,” Corbin said.
