Former 4-star recruit Xavier Peters appeared in only one game as a freshman at Florida State this year, recording one tackle.
Now, it appears the defensive end/linebacker is exploring transfer options, as his name has been placed in the NCAA transfer portal.
Per Kentucky Sports Radio, Peters has some interest in Kentucky and could end up joining Mark Stoops’ program soon:
KSR has learned that former 4-star linebacker/defensive end and ESPN Top 150 recruit Xavier Peters has put his name into the College Football transfer portal. You may remember that Peters is from Ohio and picked Florida State over Kentucky last year. KSR has learned he is now seeking a transfer and Kentucky, along with two Big Ten schools, are his top choices.
Per the 247Sports composite, Peters was the No. 12 outside linebacker in the class of 2018 and the No. 6 overall recruit from the state of Ohio.
He would likely have to sit out a year if he transfers to Kentucky.
