TALLAHASSEE — New Orleans (La.) Warren Easton four-star dual-threat quarterback Lance LeGendre, along with his mother, officially visited Florida State this weekend.
The Seminoles have been all in on LeGendre in recent months, but his involvement with the Seminoles began long ago.
“About a year ago actually, my junior year,” LeGendre said of when he started interacting with the Seminoles. “Ever since then they have been on me.”
His official visit marked his second visit to FSU. He previously visited during the spring of 2018.
“It went well. I enjoyed myself,” LeGendre said of his official visit. “They took us around the campus. I was definitely informed on the way, the legacies here. They did a good job of showing us all of that on and off the field,” LeGendre said. “I had a good host, Tre’ [McKitty]. It just went well, the whole process.”
He spent a great deal of time with offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Kendal Briles, who has personally put his fingerprints on LeGendre’s recruitment since his hiring.
“Coach Briles preached that it is a fast-tempo offense and that he needs my type of skillset, dual-threat, to be able to pass and run. I think I do a good job of doing those things. I think I could come in and put in the effort and potentially start,” LeGendre said.
The 6-foot-2, 208-pound signal-caller spoke further about his relationship with Briles.
“Coach Briles is very straight-up with me. He is real. He is a good mentor, a good father figure. He has a good track record at his previous schools he has been at, Houston, Baylor, at putting guys in the league such as R.G. III,” LeGendre added.
He and his mother also had the opportunity to sit down and speak at length with head coach Willie Taggart.
“Coach Taggart’s message is ‘Do Something’ and finish strong through everything in high school,” LeGendre said. “Just finish strong. That was his main message. Come here. This place holds a lot of legacies and the fanbase here is really strong.”
Senior defensive analyst Mario Edwards Sr. has also been a pivotal part of LeGendre’s recruitment.
The top-ranked available dual-threat quarterback plans to unveil his decision on February 6th, which is National Signing Day.
Between now and then he expects to officially visit Maryland, not Miami as was previously scheduled, next weekend.
