Florida State will be losing an offensive lineman, as redshirt senior Bless Harris announced he’ll be entering the transfer portal. Harris has one year of eligibility remaining after being granted another season due to injuries.
Harris transferred to FSU after two seasons at Lamar. He was injured during FSU’s win against Duquesne in 2022 and subsequently missed the rest of the season. He has again been hampered by injuries in 2023, preventing him from reaching his potential or any sort of consistency.
