Florida State athlete Isaiah Bolden has entered the transfer portal.

Bolden was a four-star recruit out of Wesley Chapel High. He initially committed to Willie Taggart at Oregon before following Taggart to FSU as a part of his first recruiting haul, for the class of 2018.

Bolden began his FSU career as a defensive back and made his first career start there in the Sun Bowl against Arizona State. He recorded nine tackles with two pass breakups and an interception as a redshirt freshman.

The 6-foot-2, 198-pound Bolden was also a key returner on special teams and switched to receiver during preseason camp. He participated in Saturday’s season-opening loss to Georgia Tech but did not record a statistic.

“Tall, fast, good with the ball in his hands,” first-year coach Mike Norvell said when explaining the switch last month. “He wants to be the best player that he can be.”

And he’ll apparently be doing it somewhere else.

Bolden was the second Seminole to enter the portal Tuesday, joining fellow receiver D.J. Matthews.
