Former FSU QB Deondre Francois reportedly resurfaces at FAU
Deondre Francois is being given another chance to show what he can do on a college football field.
The former Florida State quarterback was dismissed from the Seminole program this offseason after disturbing videos surfaced featuring what appeared to be a situation involving domestic violence between Francois and a woman. A few months after that incident, Francois has landed at a new school.
According to Steve Wiltfong of 247Sports, Francois plans to walk-on at FAU and play for Lane Kiffin. Francois has two seasons of eligibility remaining.
“I put myself in a terrible situation,” Francois said regarding the incident that resulted in his departure at FSU. “I’ve learned from it. I take full responsibility of everything that happened.
“I take full responsibility for my actions. I just want to learn from it and grow from it. That won’t happen again. This has impacted my life far more than anyone can imagine. It helped me grow as a man and I’m ready to embark on new beginnings.”
During his time at FSU, Francois passed for 6,291 yards and 36 touchdowns.
