The destination of three former Syracuse football players who previously entered the transfer portal was announced on Tuesday. Cornerback Adrian Cole, wide receiver Sharod Johnson and defensive end Latarie Kinsler will all be heading to Florida International University, the school announced.
Cole appeared in nine games this season, including two starts. He finished with 17 tackles and three pass breakups. Johnson, meanwhile, saw increased playing time after No. 1 receiver Taj Harris transferred early in the season. The redshirt junior started in nine games, and finished with 14 receptions for 184 yards out of the slot position. Kinsler didn’t appear in any games over the past two seasons. All three players are South Florida natives and attended high schools near FIU.
