CFB Notebook: Florida State QB Francois hit with marijuana charge
| 7 days ago

Quarterback Deondre Francois of Florida State is facing a misdemeanor marijuana charge, the Tallahassee Democrat reported on Thursday.

Francois, a sophomore who is rehabbing a left knee injury, is facing a charge of possession of fewer than 20 grams and has been ordered by Tallahassee Police to appear in court, according to the report.

Seminoles coach Willie Taggart said in a statement to the newspaper that Florida State is "aware of the situation and it is being handled internally."

Francois tore the patellar tendon in his left knee in the 2017 opener against Alabama and missed the rest of the season. He was not expected to play in the Seminoles' spring game on Saturday.

Earlier this year, Francois made headlines when he called police to his home after a domestic dispute with his ex-girlfriend. No one was charged in the incident.

--Georgia wide receiver Michael Chigbu is considering passing up his final year of eligibility because of undisclosed injuries, according to head coach Kirby Smart.

Smart said that Chigbu, who has missed recent spring practice sessions due to the injuries, "has not decided yet."

Chigbu, who would be a senior in 2018, had nine catches for the Bulldogs in 12 games, including six starts, in 2016. He had no catches in six games last season.

If Chigbu takes a medical disqualification, he would remain on scholarship but would not count toward Georgia's NCAA limit of 85 players.
