Dismissed FSU quarterback Deondre Francois plans to transfer to FAU

Francois, who graduated from Florida State this past weekend, is eligible immediately and could play two years with FAU.

Former FSU quarterback Deondre Francois is transferring to FAU as a walk-on graduate transfer, as first reported by 247Sports.

Florida St. dismissed Francois in January after video of what appeared to be a domestic violence incident became public. Francois told 247 Sports he has taken "full responsibility" for his past transgressions. I take full responsibility of everything that happened.

"Means the world to me to get another opportunity to play football again", Francois said. I just want to learn from it and grow from it. This has impacted my life far more than anyone can imagine.

Pac-12 tries to boost men's basketball, loosen transfer rule
Athletes who transfer within the Pac-12 still will be required to sit out a season in cases when the NCAA rule applies. The scheduling change comes after a couple of poor seasons by the Pac-12 in men's basketball.

Florida State Seminoles quarterback Deondre Francois (12) looks to throw the ball in the second quarter against the Michigan Wolverines at Hard Rock Stadium. Francois suffered a torn patellar tendon in the 2017 opener against Alabama and missed the rest of the season.

Francois visited the FAU campus earlier this year for the team's first spring practice and will now join returning starter Chris Robison and redshirt freshman Cordel Littlejohn on the depth chart. He returned previous year and appeared in 11 games, leading FSU with 2,731 passing yards, 15 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

Franklin and Francois will have arrived under the era of coach Lane Kiffin.

Also on the Owls' roster at quarterback are former IN transfer Nick Tronti (who played IN one game last season), junior-college transfer Justin Agner and redshirt freshman Cordel Littlejohn.
