Florida State really, really, reallydidn't need any more help against the Citadel this Saturday. It's getting it anyway.

Jimbo Fisher announced Monday that sophomore wide receiver Jesus "Bobo" Wilson will be removed from his indefinite suspension and eligible to play against the FCS Bulldogs, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Wilson was suspended after being arrested on a felony grand theft charge this summer after admitting to taking a motor scooter, but had the charges reduced to misdemeanors (petty theft, criminal mischief) in July. Wilson was allowed to practice and traveled with the team to Arlington, Texas for its win over Oklahoma State last Saturday, but Fisher said the team had no intention of playing him.

“We’ll get Bobo back in the mix this week,” Fisher said, per the Sentinel. “I’m hopeful, we’ll see, he had a great camp ... He’s been very mature in how he’s handled things."

A former three-star recruit from Miami, Wilson caught 3 passes for 23 yards as a true freshman in 2013.
