Florida State is losing its fastest receiver before he ever gets a chance to put his speed on display for the Seminoles football team.

Freshman Marvin Bracy decided to leave Florida State and become a professional sprinter, according to Rivals site

Bracy missed last season because of a hamstring injury, but was named the 'Noles offensive scout team player of the year.

He did run track for Florida State this spring and ran 6.54 in the indoor 60 meter dash in February. The time was the fastest in the nation and seventh fastest in the world.

Bracy, who was a four-star recruit, was a possibility at receiver, running back and in the return game for the Noles.

Despite Bracy’s speed and upside, Florida State will be fine with an experienced receiving corps returning. The ‘Noles return four of their top five receivers from a year ago.
