The Florida State quarterback situation is in pretty solid hands for the foreseeable future, but in the wold of college football recruiting, coaches are constantly scouting and looking toward the future.
Sophomore Deondre Francois will be the Seminoles' starting signal caller for the 2017 campaign and beyond, coming off a brilliant freshman season where he threw for 3,350 yards, 20 touchdowns and just seven interceptions. He showed versatility as a runner as well, dazzling fans with his dual-threat ability.
Justin Fields — the No. 1 dual-threat passer and No. 3 overall QB of the 2018 class according to 24/7 Sports — worked out for Jimbo Fisher and just about everyone associated with the FSU program after recently backing out of his commitment to Penn State.
Remember the days of high school kids having to earn their keep? There was a time not too long ago where current college stars would brush off recruits on visits, but now these kids are touted like full-blown celebrities. It's just the name of the game in today's landscape.
There's no questioning Fields' talent and impressive skill set. Four months ago, SEC Country reported Fields was "100 percent" committed to Penn State, but we all know early commitments mean absolutely nothing. Now Florida, Georgia, Auburn and obviously Florida State appear to be in the running for his services.
By the looks of things, everyone associated with FSU football was impressed with what they saw.
