In April, Seminole guard Robbie Berwick announced his intention to transfer from Florida State, and a month later, it was revealed that he’d resume his career at Colorado State. Today, fellow guard Benji Bell revealed his own departure from the program; what remains to be seen is where Bell heads now.

Bell, a 6-4, 204-pound senior from Gainesville, was with FSU for just a lone season after transferring in from Northwest Florida State College in Niceville. He played 10.4 minutes per game in the 2015-2016 season, during which he averaged 3.8 points and 1.0 rebounds in 33 appearances.

The departure of Bell has the 2016-2017 Seminole roster (which already excludes him online) down to 13 players, and a stark uncertainty as to just where the ‘Noles will get long-distance production, following the graduation of Devon Bookert. Here’s how the team looks, presently:

  • G C.J. Walker
  • G Dwayne Bacon
  • G Terance Mann
  • G Trent Forrest
  • G Xavier Rathan-Mayes
  • G Braian Angola-Rodas
  • F Phil Cofer
  • F Jonathan Isaac
  • F Jarquez Smith
  • F Mfionu Kabengele
  • F Brandon Allen
  • C Chris Koumadje
  • C Michael Ojo
