Quarterback Deondre Francois has consistently impressed at practices for the Under-Armour All-American game in Orlando this week.

While the quarterbacks aren’t asked to do too much at these practices, and can’t be tackled, Francois has still managed to string together enough correct plays to qualify as impressive.

GatorCountry was there to film Francois’s skills, and while he doesn’t pull off anything Top10 worthy (see above explanation) you can still get a sense of his arm strength and accuracy.

Francois is a 6’1″, 195lb slinger from IMG Academy in Orlando, Fl. He is committed to FSU but is still receiving viable interest from the Florida Gators and new head coach Jim McElwain.

He told GatorCountry’s Andrew Spivey earlier in the week that McElwain assured Francois he was wanted in Gainesville, saying “he just let me know that he’s opening up his recruiting and that I’m on top of his board.”

And then check out some of Francois’s passes from his week with the All-Americans.

    Snowflake, I’m sure Mac knows what he is doing. Passing judgement on someone who basically had 9 days to build relationships while the recruitment door was open is a bit silly. No one expects this class to be really good with a staff in transition anyway. Regardless of what you have said in prior posts there is enough talent on the current roster to put a winning product on the field with the right staff in place. Then the recruits will come. This is not a “make or break” class. Mac has been the head man less than a month, that’s hardly enough time in the position for these kids to make an informed decision. Signing day is not next week….give it till 2/4 then we can breakdown why UF sucks at that point.
