Florida State football’s Warren Thompson is entering the NCAA transfer portal, per a report from Noles247.com. The wide receiver missed FSU’s last game against Duke, as he was unavailable for an unspecified reason. Thompson saw action in six of FSU’s nine games.
Thompson came to Tallahassee out of Armwood High School (FL). The wide receiver was a consensus four-star and the 28th best wide receiver in the class. Thompson was part of Willie Taggart’s 2018 recruiting class. That class had 21 enrollees, of which 12 have now transferred.
Thompson redshirted his freshman year, before seeing his first action in 2019. In 2020, he saw multiple starts early, but crucial drops led to a decreased role for the redshirt junior. He finished 2020 with five catches, 104 yards, and a touchdown. For his career, he had 11 total catches and 195 yards.
Florida State and Ron Dugans now have just six scholarship wide receivers returning in 2021: Bryan Robinson, Keyshawn Helton, Darion Williamson, Ontaria Wilson, Jordan Young, and Kentron Poitier. FSU currently has two wide receiver commits in Malik McClain and Joshua Burrell.
Two wide receiver names to keep an eye on are Kansas Jayhawks transfer Andrew Parchment, and Louisiana high school standout Destyn “Fatt” Hill.
