A Florida State football player has announced he will be entering the transfer portal after allegedly holding out from spring practice over NIL issues.
Seminoles defensive back Jarvis Brownlee took to social media to release a statement about his decision.
“First and foremost I want to thank God for giving me the ability to play the game I love,” Brownlee wrote. “During my time at FSU, I have played alongside the best of teammates and cultivated lifelong friendships. That will continue to be a part of my life and push me to be the best version of myself day in and day out.
“Also, I would like to thank Florida State University, the entire coaching staff for the opportunity and experience of being a Nole. With that being said I decided to enter the transfer portal. I feel that this is what is best for me and the goals and aspirations that I would like to accomplish. Lastly, I want to thank my family for supporting me throughout this tough decision. I am looking forward to this new journey, but I will always appreciate my time here at Florida State University.”

A few weeks ago, reports surfaced that Brownlee had a deal for his Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) but that the contract was temporarily void after he failed to meet the minimum requirements. Brownlee was reportedly holding out until he received his money for the deal.
Now, just over two weeks later, Brownlee is moving on from Tallahassee.
The redshirt junior was a starting cornerback.
