Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher is a master at saying a whole lot while giving away very little. When Fisher was asked about the starting quarterback position he rattled off positives about each of the four quarterbacks he has on the roster.
"I'm very happy with Sean [Maguire]," Fisher said. "As we know, he came in and played great in the Syracuse game. When he came in, had a great Clemson game. It was a tough game. We lost it, but he did his part of it. Played at Florida and won. Played on a broken bone under his foot, basically an ankle. Our guys have tremendous respect for him. Can make all the throws. A leader. Means a lot. A very tough guy.
Then you have our younger guys, Francois, very talented, makes all the throws. Had a great spring. Very happy in the spring game, the development he made. The progress he seems to be making in the summer from everything we're hearing. Very excited to see him, how he takes it from the spring into the fall camp, what he's doing there.
J.J. Consentino, we've seen play. Had a good spring.
Malik Henry, came in one semester, he really flashed, did some great things with the limited knowledge he had coming into the game. This guy can play, too.
We're in great shape. The future looks really good. Anxious to see how these first guys battle in fall camp, see where we're at."
That he talked more about Maguire and redshirt freshman Deondre Francois should come as no surprise. They are the two that will be competing for the starting job this fall. As for which of those two wins the job, we probably won't know until the week before the Ole Miss game.
