LB Jeff Luc leaving FSU, looking at short list of new schools

LB Jeff Luc leaving FSU, looking at short list of new schools

By Derek Harper | The Sports Xchange/CBSSports.com
Jeff Luc was granted permission to transfer from Florida State, and Kansas State, South Carolina, Cincinnati and Tennessee State have shown interest in the former four-star linebacker recruit, according to TCPalm.

Rated the No. 15 outside linebacker prospect for the 2014 class by NFLDraftScout.com, Luc was the No. 1 linebacker recruit in the country in 2010 by Rivals.com. But he said he turned out not to be a great fit for the Seminoles' scheme, and parted ways on good terms.

"I probably didn't fit in their scheme as well as they thought I was going to," Luc told TCPalm. "(Transferring) was strictly business, it wasn't personal. I didn't want to talk about it at first, but it wasn't personal at all. I left on good terms - coach Fisher shook my hand and I texted the linebackers coach (Greg Hudson on Thursday)."

He leaves with just 23 tackles in 19 games, but the 6-foot-1, 242-pounder hopes to resurrect his once promising career. That Tennessee State is on the short list of teams is notable in that Luc wouldn't have to sit out a season.
