” Numbers-wise, Florida State’s wide receiving corps was relatively thin entering summer camp. Now, it could be even thinner.
According to the Tallahassee Democrat‘s Jim Henry, Da’Vante Phillips has been arrested on five felony charges related to “cashing or depositing items with intent to defraud, grand theft.” TomahawkNation.com subsequently confirmed the initial report.
At this point in time, there are no details available as to what led to the arrest and charges. The football program did, though, announce that Phillips has been indefinitely suspended from the team by head coach Jimbo Fisher.
FSU receiver Davante Phillips facing five felony charges, cashing or depositing items with intent to defraud, grand theft. Story forthcoming

A four-star member of the Seminoles’ 2015 recruiting class, Phillips was rated as the No. 11 receiver in the country and the No. 17 player at any position in the state of Florida. After playing in 10 games, mainly on special teams, as a true freshman, Phillips caught four passes for 33 yards in the nine games in which he played last season.
Prior to the off-field situation, Phillips was expected to make a bigger contribution to FSU’s offense this season. Should he miss any playing time as a result of the arrest, or is even dismissed, it would leave the ‘Noles with just six scholarship receivers on the roster.”
