After a whirlwind last couple of weeks revolving around the spring transfer portal period, the window officially closed on Sunday — though graduate transfers are still able to enter whenever they chose.

UAB Blazers safety transfer Jaylen Key named Florida State to his top six on Sunday, a list that also included the Alabama Crimson Tide, North Carolina Tar Heels, Ohio State Buckeyes, Ole Miss Rebels, and Oregon Ducks.

Key, a sixth-year senior, had 60 tackles, 4.5 tackles for a loss and three interceptions last year for UAB.

2024 three-star linebacker Bodie Kahoun out of Roanoke, Virginia reported a Florida State offer on Sunday. The 6-foot-2, 214-pound prospect is considered the No. 36 linebacker in the country by the 247Sports Composite rankings and also holds offers from the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Duke Blue Devils, North Carolina Tar Heels, Wisconsin Badgers, Tennessee Volunteers, NC State Wolfpack and Virginia Tech Hokies, amongst others.
