Earlier Wednesday afternoon it was reported that Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois was reportedly thinking about transferring from the program. It didn't take long for Francois to make his decision, as a new report indicates he's leaving the team.

According to Chris Hays and Chaunte'l Powell of the Orlando Sentinel, Francois has decided to take his talents elsewhere. The report indicates Francois plans to test the NFL waters before making a decision on his next team.

Here's more from the report.

If Francois hears enough positive feedback from NFL teams about his professional potential, he will enter next year’s draft.

Should he decide to use his final season of college eligibility, Francois is expected to look for a school that has an immediate need for a quarterback and a solid offensive line that would keep him upright for his last season.

Francois already earned his degree and would be immediately eligible to play at a different college program should he go that route.

It looks like Willie Taggart will be looking for a new starting quarterback next year. James Blackman returns for the Seminoles and will likely fill that role.
