On Wednesday morning, Florida State redshirt sophomore defensive back Jaiden Lars-Woodbey opted out for the remainder of the 2020 season. Woodby tweeted out this morning in an official statement that he plans to transfer from FSU.

“I believe in this program and its potential. I truly believe that this program will get back to where it needs to be eventually. I have never cheated the game of life or football or never will. However, in order to attain my ultimate goal, I feel that is in my best interest to graduate transfer and take my talents to another university.”

Woodbey joins a growing list of Seminoles to opt out in the past few weeks. He started 22 games in the garnet and gold, registering 103 total tackles and 7.5 tackles-for-loss in his career.

Woodbey signed with Florida State in 2018 as a cornerstone in former head coach Willie Taggart’s first recruiting class.
