Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois is with the team and is enrolled in classes for the spring semester, multiple sources confirmed to Noles247 .
Francois returned to the team as the spring semester began this week. An FSU spokesperson confirmed to Noles247 that Francois is still with the team. Francois, according to coach Willie Taggart, was ‘weighing his options’ on whether or not to leave FSU throughout the month of December. Francois refuted a report from the Orlando Sentinel on Dec. 19 in 2018 that stated the two-year starter would not return to FSU.
“Why would I not go back to FSU?” Francois told the Sentinel. “I’m thinking about declaring [for the NFL] but I don’t know what I’m going to do. I never told anybody nothing like that. I’m just unsure what I’m doing right now.”
Francois — who started every game for FSU in 2016 and was the starter in 2017 before suffering a season-ending knee injury — went 5-6 as a starter in his first year starting for Taggart, passing for 2,731 yards and 15 touchdowns to 12 interceptions while completing 96 of 227 passes (57.3 percent).
