FSU soccer could conceivably have just one scholarship quarterback on the roster this coming year, so the time has come to see what is out there.
If you have been residing below a rock for the much better portion of the past 7 days, there is a segment of the FSU soccer enthusiast foundation and the cynical customers of the media who are shedding their minds above the simple fact that – for the the next straight signing period – the Seminoles did not provide in a quarterback as a member of their class.
While the 2018 period could be justified considering that head coach Willie Taggart was making an attempt to get almost everything structured in below a month, the 2019 period was marred by one longtime dedicate to the Noles bolting for a further ACC team and one recruit who was leaning toward the Seminoles deciding upon a Major 10 base feeder.
Incorporate on to that the justified dismissal of Deondre Francois following the disturbing audio recording unveiled and FSU soccer is still left with just one quarterback on scholarship at this position in redshirt sophomore James Blackman.
Driving QB1 is a group of wander ons that features growing sophomore Nolan MacDonald as the Seminoles await to see if growing sophomore Jordan Travis, who transferred from Louisville, can get fast eligibility to participate in upcoming year if wanted.
With that remaining a prolonged shot probable considering that Travis would have to prove a hardship as his explanation for coming to the Noles, Taggart and FSU soccer need to provide an individual in by the transfer portal – and with several of the players still left remaining one yr rentals, the Seminoles need an individual who can backup Blackman at this position and give them a good quality unexpected emergency system.
The ideal guess for that is an individual the Noles know very very well as previous Virginia Tech signal caller Josh Jackson is the particular person to healthy that situation.
Jackson came to Tallahassee with the Hokies past year and, when he was sacked three situations, by for two touchdowns and did plenty of to prevent shedding the sport as Virginia Tech ruined the opener for Taggart’s tenure. Two games later, his year was completed with a significant knee harm in the loss to Aged Dominion.
Jackson employed his redshirt year in 2016 just before throwing for practically 3,000 yards and 20 touchdowns the following year so he would have two seasons still left if he came to the Seminoles in a worst scenario circumstance- three in a ideal scenario one if he utilized for a clinical redshirt considering that he played in just three games past year.
Jackson would be an individual who wouldn’t get shell shocked at actively playing electrical power systems like Clemson or Florida or Miami – and he is an individual who could thrust Blackman to be a much better signal caller and participate in the role of certified participant must Blackman not be capable to accomplish to specifications or get hurt.
Next Wednesday’s signing day, Taggart alluded to declaring something was in the functions at the quarterback place – and if it involves a grad transfer, the ideal selection is an individual from FSU football’s personal conference.
