The Florida State Seminoles could be without a new starting signal-caller in 2019. Deondre Francis is looking at potentially transferring.

He is weighing his options. He struggled this season as the Seminoles went 5-7.

Francois and his teammates saw the Seminoles 41-year-old Bowl streak end. Florida Gators, their rivals, ended their Bowl streak on Saturday after Thanksgiving.

Should Francois transfer, James Blackman — who will be a junior in 2019 — will likely be the starter. Blackman saw action the past two seasons when Francois did not play.

The redshirt junior went 226 of 396 for 2,719 yards in 11 games this season. He also had 15 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

He had four games, where he threw for more than 300 yards. His last game with over 300 passing yards came in Week 10 against the Boston College Eagles when he went 19 of 39 for 322 yards. He also had one touchdown and two interceptions in the game.

His best game of the season was in Week 4 against the Northern Illinois Huskies when he went 28 of 40 for 341 yards. He also had two touchdowns in the game.

The other two games, where he passed for more than 300 yards, came in Week 7 against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, as he went 28 of 40 for 341 yards. He also had two touchdowns in the game.

In Week 2, he went 31 of 46 for 320 yards against the Samford Bulldogs. He also had three touchdowns in the contest.

Francois’ best touchdown game came in Week 5 against the Louisville Cardinals. He went 16 of 27 for 294 yards with four touchdowns.

Blackman’s best game of the season was against the North Carolina State Wolfpack on November 3rd, 2018. He went 29 of 46 for 421 yards. He also had four touchdowns and an interception in the contest.

Prior to that game, Blackman made two appearances, where he went 4 of 5 for 89 yards with one touchdown.

Blackman has gone 33 of 51 for 510 yards. He also had five touchdowns and one interception.
