TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Dionte Allen, a highly recruited defensive back from Detroit who started one game for Florida State last year, has been granted a release to transfer.
A junior cornerback, Allen was credited with 2.5 tackles for loss and three pass breakups in nine games last year. He faced strong competition for playing time this season in new coach Jimbo Fisher's restructured defense.
Junior defensive tackle Moses McCray and reserve running back Tavares Pressley suffered season-ending knee injuries last week and Jarmon Fortson, considered the Seminoles most talented wide receiver, was kicked off the team Aug. 8.
Linebacker Nigel Carr's future is also in doubt after his July arrest on auto burglary and credit card theft charges.
