Talented FSU Football Wide Receiver Enters NCAA Transfer Portal

Spring football has concluded for the Florida State Seminoles, signaling an anticipated period of attrition over the next few weeks during the 15-day NCAA Transfer Portal spring window. The program needs to reduce its roster by at least four players to meet the 85-man scholarship limit, and it’s likely that more departures will occur.

On Monday afternoon, redshirt freshman wide receiver Vandrevius Jacobs entered the portal, as reported by 247Sport’s Matt Zenitz. Jacobs, who just completed his first year in Tallahassee, was vying for a role among a competitive group of wide receivers.

Despite leading the Seminoles in receiving during the Garnet & Gold Spring Showcase, where he caught two passes for 61 yards and a touchdown, Jacobs showed inconsistency throughout the spring and made some mental errors.

During the 2023 season, the Florida native appeared in five games, tallying three catches for 60 yards and a touchdown. Notably, he caught a touchdown pass in the home opener against Southern Miss and made significant receptions in other games.

Jacobs, initially signed as a four-star prospect in #Tribe23, showed promise during spring practice a year ago before being hampered by injuries throughout the season.

With Jacobs’ departure, FSU still retains 12 scholarship wide receivers, including several seasoned players and promising newcomers.

To date, Florida State has seen three scholarship players enter the portal this spring: Jacobs, cornerback Greedy Vance, and wide receiver Joshua Burrell. Currently, the Seminoles are projected to have 88 out of 85 scholarships filled.

In the winter transfer portal window that closed on January 4, the Seminoles witnessed a significant exodus of players across various positions, including quarterbacks, running backs, tight ends, offensive linemen, defensive players, and a kicker.
