Former Florida OL Kadeem Telfort lands at new school
A player who may be most remembered at Florida for being involved in a credit card fraud scandal has announced that he’s landed at a new school.
Offensive lineman Kadeem Telfort tweeted that he has committed to Alabama-Birmingham.
“They say things come to those who are patient, I see that now,” he wrote.
In March 2018, Telfort pled no contest to one third-degree felony charge of scheming to defraud, according to Alachua County court records, the Tampa Bay Times reported. He received two years of probation and had to pay $521 in court costs.
Telfort initially faced 30 felony complaints. The former 4-star recruit and Miami native was accused of using stolen credit card information from at least 10 individuals to add $1,450 to his school bookstore account and purchase $89.48 in food from 352 Delivery.
Since Florida, Telfort has played at Garden City Community College. The 6-foot-7 and 340-pounder played in six games this past season, according to his bio.
