Wide Receiver Jarmon Fortson Dismissed From Florida State

Jarmon Fortson, a starting receiver for the Florida State Seminoles has been dismissed from the program, multiple sources told TomahawkNation this morning.  Jimbo Fisher also confirmed the story.  Sources indicated that Fortson failed a drug test and that failed test, combined with multiple attitude and behavioral problems throughout his two years in Tallahassee, led to the dismissal.  This was not the result of a single failed drug test.  Credit to Chuck Oliver for first tweeting this one.  

There are some around the program who feel a sense of relief with the move.  They think Fortson was a ticking time bomb and that he would have eventually made some bad headlines of a different sort.

Fortson caught 45 balls for 610 yards last season.  The talented but troubled receiver sometimes made spectacular catches but also lacked discipline and was not dependable, often dropping balls and running the wrong routes.  6'6" 222 lb Sophomore Rodney Smith, a four-star out of Miami will replace Fortson.  Smith had an impressive Spring and the coaches raved about the talented sophomore, but he will have to prove he can replace Fortson's production.
