Rising junior cornerback Marcus Lewis is leaving Florida State football, he confirmed in a lengthy, heartfelt Twitter post on Saturday.
The news of Lewis’ departure originally came from Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher at ACC media days last week.

After playing in four games as a true freshman, Lewis set himself up for a solid dose of playing time during a big spring. That came to fruition as he started five of the first eight games of the season, but that playing time tailed off late in the season as he did not play in the final five games of his sophomore season.
