Report: Transfer quarterback visiting FSU in March

Florida State might be getting closer to adding more quarterback depth behind lone eligible (currently) signal-caller James Blackman. According to reports from Noles247 and Warchant, Texas A&M quarterback Nick Starkel has scheduled a visit to Tallahassee on the weekend of Friday, March 29. Starkel is on pace to graduate at the end of the spring semester and he’ll have two seasons of eligibility¬†remaining at his next stop.

The former Aggie is expected to visit Arkansas before making his last visit prior to his decision to FSU. He’s also shown some interest in Duke, Ohio State, and Arizona.

Starkel started five games in College Station as a redshirt freshman in 2017 after suffering an injury during the season opener. He completed 60% of his passes for 1793 yards and 14 touchdowns to six interceptions.

The Texas native lost his starting job to Kellen Mond after Jimbo Fisher took over as head coach. He spent the 2018 season in a reserve role and wants to restart his career elsewhere. Starkel is definitely more of a pocket passer but offensive coordinator Kendal Briles is known for adapting to the players he has in his system.

Obviously, with just one eligible scholarship quarterback, Florida State has got to be an attractive destination for just about any quarterback transfer. There’s definitely a possibility that a player could transfer in and win the job.
