Florida State QB Deondre Francois faces marijuana charge, report says

Francois, a redshirt junior, broke out in 2016 when he completed 58.8 percent of his passes for 3,350 yards, 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

According to the report, Francois was charged with possession of fewer than 20 grams of marijuana and has been ordered to appear in court by Tallahassee Police. He was not arrested and has been given a diversion program.

Last season, Francois entered the year as the Seminoles starting quarterback before suffering a season-ending knee injury in the season-opener against the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Taggart has said no decision has been made about who will be Florida State's starter in 2018.

Earlier this offseason, police were called to Francois' apartment after an alleged domestic incident involving his pregnant girlfriend.

FSU is holding their spring game on Saturday at 6 p.m. Francois was not going to play in the game.

Going into spring practices, Taggart expected a lot of Francois even though he was physically limited. "He's got a lot of work to do even though he's not out there on the football field, and I'm looking forward to him working on those things". James Blackman, who took over for Francois after his injury, has gotten the most first-team reps this spring.
