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

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.
