Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher announced on Friday that junior wide receiver Da'Vante Phillips has been suspended indefinitely from the football team.

Phillips is reportedly facing five felony fraud charges including four charges of "fraud cash deposit bank item with intent to defaud" and a charge of grand theft of more than $300. He was booked into jail on Friday morning and bonded out at 1:43 p.m. today according to multiple reports.

The former 4-star recruit is one of only seven wide receivers on the entire Florida State roster and regarded as arguably having the best hands on the team. He was expected to have a much larger role this season. However, in the last two seasons in 19 games, he has only five catches for 30 yards.

Florida State will open the season against preseason No. 1 ranked Alabama on Sept. 2 in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff game. The Seminoles will only have two receivers that have a caught a football in college in that high-profile game with juniors Auden Tate and Nyqwan Murray.
