Backup running back Anthony Grant is no longer with the Florida State Seminoles football team. A redshirt sophomore, Grant was part of a running back stable that looked to have depth issues prior to the additions of Texas A&M transfer Jashaun Corbin (and his recent win in an appeal for eligbility), JUCO La’Darius Webb, and Louisiana blue chip Ja’Khi Douglas.
Grant is no longer listed on the roster on Seminoles.com.
Grant received little playing time in his two seasons at Florida State. While he was considered to be a rotation option in the backfield for Willie Taggart during Walt Bell’s time, the addition of Kendal Briles reduced Grant’s playing time, resulting in a redshirt in 2019.
Grant was not expected to be a major contributor in 2020 for Mike Norvell’s Seminoles, as he was working back into football shape.
In addition to Corbin and Douglas, Florida State’s backfield now features Khalan Laborn and Deonte Sheffield. Corey Wren may also find some snaps in the backfield.
Grant was rated a composite three-star in high school, and was the 17th ranked running back in the 2018 recruiting class as well as the 43rd best player in Georgia.
6/22 PM UPDATE
