FSU quarterback Deondre Francois was investigated for his involvement in a domestic violence incident on January 23 involving his girlfriend, which was first reported by the Tallahassee Democrat. The Seminole QB called the police Tuesday night after an argument between the two, and an Incident Report was filed.

Recruiting

Florida State offered four-star defensive tackle Jaquaze Sorrells, a class of 2019 DT from Largo (Fla.) Largo High School. Sorrells is the No. 7 defensive tackle in his class and the No. 14 prospect out of Florida. Since December 31, he has picked up offers from Florida, Miami, Texas A&M, and now FSU.

The Seminoles coaching staff met with 2018 four-star defensive tackle Malcom Lamar out of Seffner (Fla.) Armwood High School. Lamar, the 11th-ranked player at his position and No. 83 player in his class, de-committed from Oregon in late December, just four days after an official visit to FSU. His connection to ’Nole head coach Willie Taggart is certainly a story to follow with the Florida native.
