Jimbo Fisher Says True Freshman Malik Henry Has A "Tremendous Chance" To Compete For Starting QB Spot

True freshman starting quarterbacks are a rarity - an extreme one. Each season, of the 128 FBS teams, maybe five or so will have a first-year player behind center. 

Could Florida State be one of those teams this fall? 

Jimbo Fisher says it's possible. 

The Seminoles' coach said today that there's a "tremendous chance" four-star freshman quarterback Malik Henry competes for the starting job this spring and summer.

Henry, a 6-foot-3, 185-pound prospect out of Long Beach, Calif., is an early-enrollee for the Seminoles.

He'll be competing against Sean Maguire and redshirt freshman Deondre Francois. 

Florida State opens its 2016 season against Ole Miss.
