According to the Tallahassee Democrat Francois is currently facing a misdemeanor charge connected to the possession of pot. The Democrat writes that the Florida State quarterback “was given a notice to appear in court by Tallahassee Police and faces a charge of possession of fewer than 20 grams of marijuana.”
It’s unclear what led up to the charge.
“We are aware of the situation and it is being handled internally,” first-year head coach Willie Taggart told the newspaper in a statement.
Francois started all 13 games under center for FSU in 2016 as well as the 2017 opener before suffering a season ending knee injury vs Alabama. He has been limited this spring as he continues to recover from that injury.
