NC State picks up Florida State transfer safety Cyrus Fagan

NCAA Football: Louisville at Florida State Melina Myers-USA TODAY Sports

NC State hit the transfer market to bolster its secondary for the second time this fall, in this case adding veteran Florida State safety Cyrus Fagan, who left the Seminoles program in October after appearing in the team’s first three games.

Fagan was a consensus four-star prospect in the class of 2017 and ranked in the top 100. He played right away for the Seminoles, and after a limited freshman year, appeared in all 12 games as a sophomore, recording 24 tackles. As a junior in 2019, he finished 10th on the team with 41 tackles despite playing in only eight contests.

Amusingly enough, his best game of 2019 was a 10-tackle performance against NC State. Dave Doeren, master of the recruiting long-run, out here playing chess when everyone else is playing checkers.

Fagan, who is listed at 6’1 and 195 pounds by FSU, could not secure a starting position early in the year, which is likely one reason why he left. We’ll take it—his experience should provide an immediate boost.
