Florida State Seminoles basketball is losing another player to the transfer portal.
Freshman guard Jeremiah Bembry is the latest Seminoles’ hooper to enter the portal, following in the footsteps of Naheem McCloud, Caleb Mills (who committed to the Memphis Tigers) and Matthew Cleveland.
He did not play this past season due to injury.
From Bembry’s FSU bio:
In the mold of the great big point guards that allows the Seminoles to switch at all five positions…has the size and strength that will allow him to be successful in Florida State’s offensive and defensive systems…with his big body, he has the ability to play in the post and is a versatile defender…makes great decisions with the basketball…great on the defensive end of the court as his length (6-9 wingspan) is one of his greatest assets…will fit right into Florida State’s offensive scheme as a pass-first guard…an outstanding ball handler who has worked hard to adapt to his increased height during his career…a strong catch and shoot player who can lead the break, penetrate and shoot on the run…a lefthander but is ambidextrous and can finish at the rim with both hands…named as the 40th best prep point guard in the country by 247sports.
