Florida State's inability to sign a high school quarterback in one of the last two recruitment cycles has many fans in a rebellion, but if Seminole's main feature Willie Taggart is too worried, he didn't show it on his signing day's press conference Wednesday.
Taggart acknowledged that Seminoles need further depth of the post, but he added that he feels good about the opportunities for his team coming in 2019.
"We have a plan – I think a pretty good plan, "said the second year's main feature. "I don't necessarily want to discuss it right now where we want to go. We've had this place in place." "
Despite Taggart's assurances, it has turned out to be a very published whiff after another at the post, starting when he was tasked with trying to rescue FSU's 201
Then there was Sam Howell's situation last December, Howell was committed to FSU for months, but turned back to North Carolina after former offensive co-ordinator Walt Bell left head coaches at UMass, losing Howell would have been bad enough, but it was reinforced by the fact that Seminole's apparently delayed other QB's because of Howell and his family were worried about competition.
So this week, Florida State missed out on two top QB goals, Mississippi quarterback John Rhys Plumlee chose Ole Miss on Monday when New Orleans sig The Lancer Legendre chose us on Wednesday in Maryland.
It leaves FSU with only two scholarship quarterbacks at present – redshirt sophomore James Blackman and Louisville transfer Jordan Travis. Blackman is the clear foremost to be the Seminoles' starting quarter in the fall as a result of the recent dismissal of veteran Deondre Francois.
Taggart addressed the Francois dismissal on Wednesday and said that the situation actually affected his decision to be very selective in recruiting other quarterbacks.
