There are a lot of people on the Heisman train
Amidst all the turmoil in the transfer portal and players declaring for the NFL Draft, which was one for the record books, FSU fans can breathe a sigh of relief because their top signal-caller is staying home. Florida State quarterback Jordan Travis announced on Monday night that he will be returning for the 2023 season, which sparked a social media frenzy of cheers and Heisman talk for next year.
Travis, who began his career with the Louisville Cardinals, transferred to Florida State for the 2019 season. He earned a sixth year of eligibility as part of a blanket decision by the NCAA in 2020.
Despite appearing in just 37 games over his time in Tallahassee and becoming a full-time starter for the first time this season, he’s the only player in Florida State history to be top 10 in both passing and rushing touchdowns.
Let’s take a look at some of the best reactions from social media.
FSU wide receiver Mycah Pittman made his prediction known:
Y’all know how I predicted Travs year and pulled out receipts? Heisman 2023 winner. I’ll be grabbing my receipts by the end of the year https://t.co/z3ggrPgS9K

Since 2004, Jordan Travis trails only Jameis Winston in ESPN’s Expected Points Added and Points Above Average among #FSU QBs. Shows both how insane Jameis was but also how valuable Jordan has been #FSUTwitter https://t.co/Qi9ElCvtp5
