Former Florida State starting quarterback Deondre Francois, who graduated this past weekend, is transferring to Florida Atlantic.
This Just In
Former Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois is joining Florida Atlantic as a walk-on graduate transfer, he confirmed to ESPN on Monday. 247 Sports first reported Florida Atlantic's addition. Francois, who graduated from Florida State this past weekend, is eligible immediately and could play two years with FAU. Florida State dismissed Francois in February after his ex-girlfriend posted an Instagram video alleging that he abused her. Francois was never charged in the incident. His ex-girlfriend, Diamond Lindsey, told ESPN that after the initial Instagram video, someone hacked into her account and posted a statement that appeared to recant the allegations. Lindsey said she never reported the January altercation with Francois to police or school officials, but wanted to share it publicly to help other women experiencing similar issues. Francois appeared in 25 games for FSU, earned ACC Rookie of the Year honors in 2016 after passing for 3,350 yards and 20 touchdowns. Francois suffered a torn patellar tendon in the 2017 opener against Alabama and missed the rest of the season. He returned last year and appeared in 11 games, leading FSU with 2,731 passing yards, 15 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
