    The new coach probably has other choices he’s working in the background

    Any chance Norvell "processed" him rather than the other way around?

    I am curious ... what are the chances Felipe Franks could transfer to FSU and be eligible to play immediately?

    I’m assuming he’s graduated or graduating so he should be free to go wherever he wants and play immediately. Can’t imagine him going to one of our biggest rivals though. He seemed to really like being a gator..

    Oh I hear you, but what other P5 school could give him a chance to start immediately?

    Norvell told him he didn't fit their system and Sims is likely GT bound anyways. FSU offered a USF commit Tate Rodemaker

    No clue. Don’t follow many programs other than ours. Driskell made an nfl roster from la tech though. Think something along those lines is going to be Franks best option. Go somewhere he can light up the scoreboard and beat up on lesser talent the whole year. Well, I guess fsu is still in the acc...but...nah.

    Sims didn't look too bad when he played against the UGA commit. He looks fast. We should offer him and turn him into a slot receiver / wildcat QB.

    Following in burrows footsteps would be a rough gig for him. I hope he finds a better situation for himself

    I'm not sure of what norvell runs. But from what I've read about sims he is a pass first guy though a DT. If I was FF it wouldn't matter to me if it was fsu. It is about the opportunity to showcase. So, yeah maybe . FSU need a one year stop Gap to allow them to recruit.

    BUT. I'm not sure he's even going to be able to play spring. Imo he's done with football. Which is very sad. I didn't love him but have nothing but respect for his efforts at Florida and how he grew.

    With fsu's QB room, not sure they can afford to process anyone out.

    I believe he is graduating, so,he should be able to go anywhere and play right away. Can't imagine he would do that there though.

    stealing commits from the mighty USF... does Norvell know he's now at a major P5 school?
