Ever since National Signing Day on the first of February, the question has lingered: how will the Seminoles trim their roster down to the limit of 85 scholarship players? Well, the ’Noles are now a little closer, as multiple sources have informed Tomahawk Nation that redshirt-senior offensive lineman Ryan Hoefeld has moved on from the Florida State football team. He will graduate this upcoming Spring and will be starting a medical job in the near future.
Hoefeld (6’2, 306) hails from New Orleans, and began his FSU career in 2013, when he redshirted. He started four games in 2014 and four more in 2015, the same year that he underwent knee surgery. Playing time was scarce for Hoefeld in 2016, as he only saw the field against Syracuse.
The Seminoles are now at 17 scholarship offensive linemen: Wilson Bell, Rick Leonard, Derrick Kelly, Corey Martinez, Alec Eberle, Brock Ruble, Ethan Frith, Cole Minshew, David Robbins, Abdul Bello, Landon Dickerson, Andrew Boselli, Josh Ball, Baveon Johnson, Mike Arnold, Jauan Williams, and newcomer Brady Scott.
