The Florida State Seminoles have been relatively quiet from a recruiting standpoint thus far this offseason, especially at the quarterback position.
The only quarterback on FSU's roster for 2019 is James Blackman, leaving the Seminoles to rely on recruitment to find another arm in the lineup. However, they've failed to entice any recruits and are still sitting with just Blackman. The ACC continues to improve, while FSU struggles to remain relevant.

Things aren't looking great for FSU and their recruitment efforts.
Willie Taggart is undoubtedly feeling the heat, as he watches his targets sign elsewhere, leaving FSU reeling for another quarterback.
As things stand, the Seminoles will rely on Blackman to be their 2019 starter. The Sophomore quarterback appeared in just three games in 2018, logging a completion percentage of 64.7 and 510 total passing yards. His freshman year made him an attractive option, but his second year quickly turned ugly after he lost the job to Deondre Francois.
Following a domestic abuse dispute, the Seminoles released their starter, ultimately leaving the QB1 job open. But, it's Blackman's to lose.
Still, Taggart and his staff dropped the ball bringing in a top talent behind center for 2019. It sure will hurt come the fall.
