The NCAA granted immediate eligibility to Florida State transfer quarterback Jordan Travis on Monday, a huge boost to the Seminoles' need for depth at the position. Travis transferred from Louisville in December, and Florida State had been waiting months to hear whether the redshirt freshman would have his waiver for immediate eligibility approved. The school said in a statement the Division I Committee for Legislative Relief approved the waiver on appeal. Then, the Seminoles had to file a request with the ACC faculty athletics representatives to waive the conference's restriction against immediate eligibility for undergraduate student-athletes who transfer between ACC schools. That request was granted Monday. The decision means Florida State now has three scholarship quarterbacks on the roster, including projected starter James Blackman and Wisconsin transfer Alex Hornibrook. "We are excited for Jordan and thankful to the people who examined his situation and reason for his transfer," coach Willie Taggart said in a statement. "Specifically, we want to thank FSU's compliance office, the Committee for Legislative Relief, the ACC faculty athletics representatives and the University of Louisville for their cooperation. This has been a long but deliberate process, and we are happy to achieve closure on Jordan's situation."

Former Florida State starting quarterback Deondre Francois, who graduated this past weekend, is transferring to Florida Atlantic.
This Just In
Former Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois is joining Florida Atlantic as a walk-on graduate transfer, he confirmed to ESPN on Monday. 247 Sports first reported Florida Atlantic's addition. Francois, who graduated from Florida State this past weekend, is eligible immediately and could play two years with FAU. Florida State dismissed Francois in February after his ex-girlfriend posted an Instagram video alleging that he abused her. Francois was never charged in the incident. His ex-girlfriend, Diamond Lindsey, told ESPN that after the initial Instagram video, someone hacked into her account and posted a statement that appeared to recant the allegations. Lindsey said she never reported the January altercation with Francois to police or school officials, but wanted to share it publicly to help other women experiencing similar issues. Francois appeared in 25 games for FSU, earned ACC Rookie of the Year honors in 2016 after passing for 3,350 yards and 20 touchdowns. Francois suffered a torn patellar tendon in the 2017 opener against Alabama and missed the rest of the season. He returned last year and appeared in 11 games, leading FSU with 2,731 passing yards, 15 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
