Florida State Head Coach Jimbo Fisher announced today that sophomore wide out Isaiah Jones has been declared academically ineligible. His departure will be more pressure on Albany native Rashad Greene to produce.

The 6'4'' Jones was supposed to fill the hole left by 6'5'' Kelvin Benjamin who is now with the Carolina Panthers. With Kenny Shaw graduated, only Greene and tight end Nick O'Leary remain as Jameis Winston's top targets from last year. Greene knows it his responsibility help his teammates' development.

"I have a group of guys that's younger than me so its more about taking responsibility and making sure they do things right," Greene said. "So when I do leave they can continue to have that same mentality that same ability to pass that onto the guys that come after them."

Jarred Haggins and Christian Green are the only other senior receivers on the squad. Greene was a captain on last year's team.
