Thursday 10 a.m. update:
Less than 24 hours after news broke that freshman defensive end Xavier Peters had entered his name in the NCAA Transfer Portal, he took to Twitter to answer the big question everyone wants to know. Is Peters planning to transfer from FSU?
In a clear statement on Twitter, Peters let FSU fans know, he’s staying.
It’s unclear if Peters has removed his name from the transfer portal. But here is the message that was posted Thursday morning:

A source informed Noles247 that Florida State freshman defensive end Xavier Peters has entered his name into the NCAA Transfer Portal.
The transfer portal is essentially a database that lets other teams know that you are available to transfer. A player can always withdraw his name at any time as well. Entering your name does not mean you intend to transfer, but it does allow a player to test the waters and communicate with coaches from other programs.
Peters signed with Florida State as part of the Seminoles’ 2018 recruiting class, where he was a highly touted four-star prospect. Peters played in one game as a true freshman and recorded one tackle.
Earlier this evening Kentucky Sports Radio (KSR) reported Kentucky is a possible transfer destination. The site mentioned Kentucky along with “two Big Ten programs” as teams of interest.
Noles247 will be sure to update this story as things develop.
