Khalan Laborn won’t be with the Florida State football team in 2020, a school spokesperson confirmed on Tuesday afternoon. Laborn was dismissed “due to a violation of team policy.”
It’s not immediately clear the reasoning for Laborn’s departure, if it was his choice or a decision by the FSU coaching staff. Noles247.com reported earlier this afternoon that Laborn would be removed from the Seminoles’ roster.
Laborn arrived as a five-star tailback from Virginia – committing to FSU while arriving at the Opening event in Oregon in a Lamborghini. He took a redshirt in 2017 and then caught a 37-yard pass in the 2018 season opener before missing the remainder of the season due to a knee injury.
Last season, Laborn returned to the field and played in 10 games. He ran 63 times for 297 yards and four touchdowns but also was suspended for the Florida game. Laborn did not play in FSU’s bowl game after having what was described as minor knee surgery.
Laborn was with the Seminoles in practice this spring and was expected to compete for a starting job with Texas A&M transfer Jashaun Corbin, junior college transfer La’Damian Webb as well as three freshmen signees. The Seminoles also have a few experienced walk-ons, including Deonte Sheffield.
