Florida State linebacker leaving the program to prep for the NFL

The Seminoles will lose a legacy player from the 2017 class.

Adam Fuller and Florida State's defense will lose a piece of depth at linebacker after an announcement was made from redshirt junior DeCalon Brooks on Friday.

"It's been a wild four years, but I'm extremely thankful for every last one of them. First I have to thank God for all the blessings he has bestowed upon me throughout my time in college. Without him none of this would be possible. To my family, thank you for all the support and love you guys continuously give me through all the ups and downs I have faced."
