Former FSU basketball forward unveils new destination

Former Florida State forward Sola Adebisi will transfer to The Citadel, a Division 1 military college located in Charleston, South Carolina. Adebisi played in 15 games for the Seminoles as a walk-on over the past two seasons, playing some real minutes when FSU was dealing with foul trouble or injuries.

At 6-foot-4 and 205 pounds, Adebisi wasn’t your typical walk-on and was extremely athletic. I’ve seen him throw windmills and 360 dunks during warmups and he should fit right in with The Citadel’s style. Adebisi was teammates with former Seminole Matthew Cleveland at Cambridge High School during the 2018-2019 season. Fortunately, Adebisi made better life decisions and didn’t move to Miami after leaving Florida State.

The Citadel is coming off an 11-21 season in the Southern Conference and is in coach Ed Conroy’s second stint with the team. Being a military college makes it harder for them to recruit quality players, and they haven’t had a winning season since 2009, the year Coach Conroy won SoCon Coach of the Year.

Adebisi was able to give FSU some big improvements, including four points in the first half against Clemson in January 2023, helping the ‘Noles come back from a 15-point deficit to take their first lead of the game heading into the pause. Despite being smaller, his athleticism allowed him to play at the 5 against certain lineups and I’m curious to see how he performs in an expanded role at The Citadel.
