Florida State wide receiver Da’Vante Phillips has struggled on the field in two years with the Seminoles. After Friday, he probably won’t see the field in 2017.
Phillips reportedly faces five felony charges for cashing or depositing items with intent to defraud and grand theft based upon Leon County Circuit Court records, according to the Tallahassee (Fla.) Democrat.
Upon hearing the allegations, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher announced Phillips is indefinitely suspended from the team.

Phillips has 5 catches in two years with Florida State, but he was expected to provide depth to a thin wide receiver group for the Seminoles. Last season, he had 4 receptions for 33 yards.
Coming into college, Phillips was highly regarded as a 4-star recruit. He also was ranked the 11th-best wide receiver in the 2015 recruiting class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
