The Florida State Seminoles saw another player enter the transfer portal today — this time, the attrition comes from the linebacker room.

Jadarius Green-McKnight, a 5’11”, 208 lb redshirt sophomore from Fort Myers, Florida, has entered his name in the transfer portal. Green-McKnight came to FSU from Dunbar High School as 247 composite’s 20th best safety of his cycle and was recently switched to linebacker due to poor depth at the position. Green-McKnight was rated as a 4 star recruit and finished his FSU career with one solo tackle. Now, he will search for a new home.
