Former Florida State tight end transfers to FAMU

The former Seminole will spend his final three years of eligibility not far from Florida State.

Former Florida State tight Koby Gross has found a new home to finish out his three remaining years of eligibility, and he won’t have to go far as he has decided to commit to FAMU.

Koby Gross came to FSU in the 2021 class. He was an enticing prospect with size and speed. Despite not playing for Diablo Community College due to the pandemic, head coach Mike Norvell took Gross because of the potential he offered in the FSU offense.

The much-debated former 'Nole was able to show flashes in practice and he was looking to take the next step this past spring. An unfortunate foot injury kept him out of spring so he wasn’t able to show the progress on the field that he had made off it.

A few weeks ago, Gross entered the NCAA Transfer Portal. After getting some interest from Power 5 programs and some FCS schools, Gross initially was going to head back to California and re-enroll at Diablo.
