After announcing earlier this week that he wanted to leave Florida State, linebacker Xavier Peters wasted little time finding his new destination. The former four-star prospect only needed one visit to decide where he’d be going next year.
According to CatsPause, Peters has told Wildcats head coach Mark Stoops that he is transferring to Kentucky. The move comes after Peters revealed he would be leaving Florida State to be at a school closer to where his young son lives.
As a prospect out of high school in 2018, Peters was a four-star prospect and the No. 174 recruit in the country, per 247Sports. He was the No. 12 outside linebacker in the country, and the No. 6 prospect from the state of Ohio.
Peters had a tackle and a pass defended in his freshman season.

Peters marks the fourth Florida State player to enter the transfer portal this year. Running back Amir Rasul, wide receiver George Campbell, and tight end Naseir Upshur have all entered the portal, with Campbell standing as the only other player to find a new destination.
But as the transfer portal takes players away, it has also given the school a few.
Florida State has landed quarterbacks Alex Hornibrook and Jordan Travis to replace the departed Deondre Francois.
