From Howell’s flip, to the linebacker corps being revamped, we’ve got your one-stop shop to the early signing period on Wednesday.
Head Coach Willie Taggart met with the media on Wednesday afternoon to give updates and thoughts on the early signing period.
In perhaps the most significant move of the day, 4-star and Elite-11 quarterback Sam Howell decided to de-commit from Florida State and signed with his home state UNC Tar Heels.
Florida State now has just one scholarship quarterback on the roster. The position is in a precarious spot, writes Brendan Sonnone.
FSU spent a ton of time and energy on Sam Howell. Now the future of the quarterback room is up in the air after his Heel turn.https://t.co/WP8I26aKvx— Brendan Sonnone (@BSonnone) December 19, 2018

Just when you thought the drama of National Signing Day was over, the day took a weird twist. At around 6:30pm on Wednesday, the Orlando Sentinel first reported that Deondre Francois, according to three different sources close to him, was on his way out of Tallahassee. Not weighing his professional options with the potential of returning to FSU...but leaving the Garnet & Gold and either declaring for the NFL Draft or transferring.
That’s when Francois took to Twitter, adamantly refuting the report.

Francois even called the Orlando Sentinel and had them change the report.

That’s when everyone started getting along again.
