Florida State hasn’t brought a quarterback on campus since 2017, when now redshirt-junior James Blackman signed.
That changed today, when Georgia quarterback Tate Rodemaker made things official during the Early Signing Period.
Rodemaker committed last week, new head coach Mike Norvell’s first big verbal get. From our piece Friday:
Rodemaker is ranked the nation’s No. 27 prostyle QB, the 71st best player in Georgia, and the country’s No. 720 prospect overall. His primary recruiter was new offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham, and he also has offers from Baylor, Utah, Virginia Tech, Pitt, Northwestern, Boston College, USF, and many other programs.
He’s planning on early enrolling, always a plus when it comes to quarterbacks. Rodemaker had originally committed to South Florida, largely in part due to former Bulls coordinator Kerwin Bell being the first person to offer the signal caller a scholarship when Bell was head coach at Valdosta State.
As a senior, Rodemaker threw for over 3,000 yards and 42 touchdowns.
