Florida State football, recruiting news: Jimbo Fisher is fed up with cheap hits on his QB

Dalvin Cook to the Philadelphia Eagles?

NCAA Football: Clemson at Florida State Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports


It’s no secret that Deondre Francois took a bunch of tough hits last year but his Head Coach, Jimbo Fisher, feels that far too many of them were unenforced cheap hits.

All the injuries came from late and cheap hits,” Fisher said recently. “If we don’t emphasize the hitting on the quarterback, we’re nuts. I mean, I’ve got ‘em on film. After the second step was in the ground, he’s made contact on. It’s supposed to be an automatic penalty. It’s got to be an emphasis. They’re vulnerable.

Every College Football Playoff contender has issues to fix from FSU’s O-line, to Ohio State’s Wide Receivers to Alabama’s thermal exhaust port in its Death Star.

Florida State’s workout warrior is Ryan Izzo?

One major key for FSU this off-season is replacing all the production that left at Wide Receiver.

Are you a Booster? Then Jimbo Fisher may be coming to a tour stop near you very soon.


One of the best wide receivers in the country from out of Alabama, Justyn Ross, took a visit to FSU yesterday.

“I want to learn where they are going to be with their quarterbacks,” Ross said. “I want to know their current quarterback situation and what it looks like for the future if I was to end up there.

“That is pretty important to me,” Ross said.

FSU commitment Charles Strong also took a visit to FSU yesterday.
