  • Former FSU QB Deondre Francois transfers to FAU

The end of the 2018 football season didn’t end well for Florida State. It didn’t get any better when incumbent quarterback Deondre Francois was allegedly involved in a domestic violence incident. The school released the QB after a video was released by the then-girlfriend of the quarterback, claiming he assaulted her.

The former Seminole was never charged, and it was never officially reported to the police.

The quarterback has now found a new home, as he will walk-on at Florida-Atlantic University, where he will be eligible immediately, after graduating from FSU.

Francois had a tumultuous 2018, throwing for 2,731 yards, 15 tds, and 12 in 11 games. He missed all of the 2017 season after suffering a leg injury in the season-opener against Alabama. That season was to be a breakout year, following an ACC Rookie of the Year performance in 2016, throwing for 3,350 yards, and 20 tds.
