Aside from landing commitments from high school recruits, no news is often good news for a college football program during the summer months. It can be an idle period during which players find themselves in trouble with the law, and that’s precisely the case again, as Florida State redshirt-senior defensive end Keith Bryant was recently arrested by the Leon Country Sheriff’s Office.
Per the LCSO’s daily booking report, Bryant was arrested and released on June 6th for a nonmoving traffic violation of driving while his license was suspended. The offense is also described as habitual.
What’s more, Bryant is no longer listed on the FSU roster included on Seminoles.com— meaning that this transgression may have meant the end for Bryant in a Florida State uniform. This could be part of an answer to the broader question surrounding just how Florida State will trim its roster down to 85 scholarship players, as has already been discussed by our Bud Elliott. The scholarship defensive ends on that roster, at present, are redshirt-junior Adam Torres, junior Josh Sweat, redshirt-sophomore Jalen Wilkerson, sophomore Brian Burns, redshirt-freshman Janarius Robinson, and freshman Joshua Kaindoh.
Tomahawk Nation reached out to FSU sports information about Bryant’s status, but we’ve not heard back, as of publication. This article will be updated when we do receive a response.
