247 Sports – The next chapter for former Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois will be at Florida Atlantic, where he’ll walk-on to play for Lane Kiffin. Francois has two years of eligibility remaining.
Francois was dismissed from the Seminoles program in February one day after video of a possible domestic incident came to light on Instagram. In January of 2018, Francois was cleared of a separate domestic violence incident.
“I put myself in a terrible situation,” Francois told 247Sports. “I’ve learned from it. I take full responsibility of everything that happened.
Francois was the ACC Rookie of the Year in 2016, and played for FSU from 2015-2018. He holds a career quarterback rating of 131.0, with 36 touchdowns thrown to 21 interceptions in three seasons.
