Who You Need to Know For College Football Kick off Weekend: IMG Alum Deondre Francois (FSU)
College Football kicks off this weekend, and IMG Academy continues to lead the nation in graduates who will be competing across the nation's football fields. As a college preparatory school, IMG Academy remains on the forefront of college recruitment for both academic and athletic success. IMG Academy holds dozens of players competing this weekend in football alone, and several of these players have the opportunity to make a name for themselves inside the FBS. Highlighted via The Tallahassee Democrat is Deondre Francois, who graduated in 2015. In his first debut of 2017 under the lights for FSU, check out the hype surrounding Francois:
"Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois has high expectations heading into the 2017 season. As a redshirt freshman, Francois threw for 3,350 yards -- The fifth most yards by any player in program history -- and led the Seminoles to a 10-3 record... 'There are also plenty of things that he [quarterback coach Randy Sanders] thinks Francois does well enough not to be messed with. 'I think he sees the field pretty well, and I think mechanically he’s very sound,' Sanders said."
