Florida State football will be losing an intriguing defensive lineman, as Ayobami Tifase announced that he’ll be entering the transfer portal.
Tifase was considered an underrated steal when FSU landed his commitment and signature late in the 2023 cycle after he reclassified. He redshirted last season and played in three games during the 2023 campaign, assisting on a tackle versus the Syracuse Orange.
Tifase had expressed discontent at times this season and will now look for a new program to continue developing and hopefully find greener pastures.
