FSU football: Fans react to Chad Mascoe de-commitment

FSU football lost its 2022 quarterback commit Chad Mascoe Friday afternoon. Nole fans react to the news although it’s not surprising.

FSU football continues to see fragments of the Willie Taggart era leave the program. Friday’s version was 2022 QB commit Chad Mascoe, who de-committed from the program which comes as no surprise.

Typically I wouldn’t care too much about a 2022 recruit’s commitment or de-commitment, but the quarterback position is different when it comes to recruiting.

Mascoe committed to Willie Taggart and staff on August 31st, 2019, right before the Boise State game.

The 2022 rankings are nowhere close to being finalized, but Mascoe is considered a talented prospect that plays at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. He missed most of 2019 with a torn meniscus injury and has stated in interviews he’d be locked into FSU as long as he felt comfortable with how the offense would be run under Mike Norvell.

Those plans have changed, and it could have been similar to the Jeff Sims situation a couple of months ago.

Final Thoughts

I suspect it was a mutual parting of ways as Mascoe doesn’t have great size regarding height and didn’t display the greatest accuracy in his lone year of playing varsity football.

He completed 59 percent of his passes for 21 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Mike Norvell and Kenny Dillingham have stated numerous times they want an accurate quarterback that doesn’t turn the ball over.

Although it was his freshman season, completing only 59 percent of his passes likely was a red flag. Not to mention he committed fairly early even though quarterbacks usually commit earlier than other positions. That’s not to say he can’t improve greatly over the next two years.

Mascoe not making the trip up to meet the new staff during the junior days in February and March, or any other time. That was telling in and of itself.

Good luck to the young man!
