Sophomore defensive end Jordan Smith, whose credit card fraud case is still being considered by the State Attorney’s Office, announced Thursday on Twitter that he’s leaving Florida and is looking to transfer to another school.
Smith, along with eight other players, was suspended from all football activities indefinitely before the start of the season. Seven of the players involved in the credit card fraud accepted pretrial intervention in October, but Smith’s case, along with that of true freshman offensive lineman Kadeem Telfort, remains open.
Here is a portion of Smith’s Tweet: “Due to my recent actions and coaching changes I will not be returning to the university of Florida and will be looking for other opportunities to further my education and my football career.”
There is a report that Telfort, who is facing 30 felony charges, has also left school and is looking to transfer.
