According to the Tallahassee Democrat, Florida State Seminoles redshirt junior quarterback Deondre Francois has been busted with marijuana possession. The publication did not say exactly when he got in trouble, but it had to be recently.
Francois, who was injured in the Top 5 matchup with the Alabama Crimson Tide in the season opener, has to appear in court, according to the story. He’s charged with possession of fewer than 20 grams.
New Florida State Head Coach Willie Taggart said he’s aware of the situation. But he said this matter will be handled internally.
He could potentially be suspended, or even miss time, during the season-opener because of this charge.
Francois has an opportunity to start for the Seminoles this season. But he was not at Thursday’s spring practice, according to the paper.
He’s been limited in the spring as he recovers from a torn patellar tendon injury he suffered against the Crimson Tide. When he’s healthy, he’ll have to beat out James Blackman and Bailey Hockman for the starting job.
When Francois went down with his injury, Blackman took over for him. Blackman guided the Seminoles to a Bowl game despite some controversy over if they were eligible after playing the Delaware State Hornets.
The news came out two days before the Seminoles hold their annual Spring game. He’s not expected to play in the game, though, as he recovers.
