FSU’s running back room takes a hit.

Peyton Baker/Tomahawk Nation

The Florida State Seminoles football team has been active in both arrivals and departures to the transfer portal.

Today, the offense received a hit for next season when running back Treshaun Ward announced his entry into the portal.

Ward had been the starter at running back this past season until his injury in the North Carolina State game. From there, fellow back Trey Benson seized control of the backfield with an impressive end of the year stretch. For the season, Ward finished with five touchdowns to accompany his 547 regular season rushing yards. The redshirt sophomore averaged an impressive 6.4 yards per carry.
