As Tomahawk Nation first reported, Jeff Luc will transfer from Florida State, the school confirmed today. Luc, a former four/five-star linebacker from Port St. Lucie (Fla.) Treasure Coast High School was a major recruit in the 2010 class.
But the recruiting accolades never turned into production on the field for the big hitting linebacker. Luc was often injured during his time in Tallahassee, and for a time had trouble picking up the defense.
Luc will look at Kansas State, Rutgers, Louisville and UCF. Alex Luc, Jeff's brother, denied reports that Jeff is a done deal to Kansas State. The Wildcats are a likely landing spot, however, as they stand to lose three senior linebackers after the season.
Luc is the second transfer of the day for the Seminoles, joining Darious Cummings, a sophomore defensive lineman who was similarly buried on the depth chart.
Neither players were trouble makers during their time in Tallahassee, and we wish them well.
