Florida Point out desperately essential a quarterback in the 2019 course.

FSU may perhaps have even essential two quarterbacks this cycle due to the attrition the position has sustained more than the earlier number of a long time.

Now it appears to be like the Seminoles are heading to come up small at the position for the next straight 12 months.

Four-star quarterback Lance LeGendre fully commited to Maryland more than FSU on Wednesday and four-star quarterback John Rhys Plumlee fully commited to Ole Miss out on more than FSU on Monday.

This arrives following the Seminoles endured a very last moment flip by lengthy-time quarterback dedicate Sam Howell in the course of the early signing time period. Howell stayed in-point out at North Carolina.

Not having a quarterback in this recruiting cycle places FSU in an dreadful position heading forward.

Redshirt sophomore James Blackman is the only scholarship quarterback on the roster that is suitable to engage in in 2019. After that you can find wander-on Nolan McDonald.

That’s the point out of the quarterback place.

For a application that experienced three straight starting off quarterbacks drafted in the 1st round at the starting of this ten years, it can be been a hard drop off a cliff at the position.

Every quarterback but Sean Maguire — who was signed in the exact same course as Jameis Winston — has possibly transferred or been kicked off the workforce.

Only Blackman is still left and he was looking at transferring from the application in January. 

You can find no way to sugarcoat how poor of a loss this is for FSU.

FSU does have transfer Jordan Travis on the roster, but he’s not suitable to engage in in 2019 except if he get’s a waiver from the NCAA. That waiver isn’t probable to come.

FSU could switch to a graduate transfer, but you can find no ensure that the instant that is announced that Blackman would not put his identify in the transfer portal.

That would go away FSU in an even worse position than they were presently in looking at Blackman even now has three a long time of eligibility still left and a graduate transfer would probable come in for just the a person period.

The Seminoles have to locate depth at quarterback someplace, but following missing out on all three of its leading quarterback targets more than the very last two months, you can find genuinely no response below.
