Marvin Bracy To Turn Pro

It looks as though college football's fastest man will be moving on to bigger and better things.

Freshman two-sport athlete Marvin Bracy will opt to forego his remaining eligibility and turn professional in track, although no official announcement has been made by the school at this time.

Bracy was a four-star recruit out of Orlando's Boone High School in the class of 2012, in addition to being an All-American sprinter.

It was originally thought that Bracy would come in and immediately contend for kick returning duties. But after re-aggravating a hamstring injury from his senior year, Bracy was sidelined for the entire fall and wound up redshirting.

Bracy also missed the entire spring football camp due to focusing on his track obligations, which coach Jimbo Fisher made clear would certainly be a setback for the wide receiver.

"His absence will hinder him greatly," Fisher said.

Bracy was having a stellar freshman campaign for the FSU track and field team until pulling up with another hamstring injury in the Florida Relays which were held in Gainesville on April 6.

According to the Orlando Sentinel's Coley Harvey, Bracy has not attended a single practice at FSU since that time nor has he met with any FSU athletic trainers to be treated for the injury.

Regardless, don't expect to see the football team feel the effects of Bracy's decision to turn professional. The Seminoles return four of their top-five receivers. Rodney Smith is the only receiver gone as he recently signed a free agency contract with the Minnesota Vikings.

With it being final exam week on FSU's campus, we should hear an announcement from the school relatively soon. Stay tuned for more details.
