FSU football will begin a week from today and will have a new starting quarterback for the first time since the 2021 season with the exit of fan favorite Jordan Travis. The quarterback position had a large responsibility for the downward trajectory under Jimbo Fisher and Willie Taggart, as neither coach could land a difference-maker post-Jamies Winston. In Willie Taggart's case, he didn't think Jordan Travis could play and never gave him the opportunity. Nevertheless, Mike Norvell molded Jordan Travis from an athlete running around making plays out of nothing, to a legit quarterback who finished top-five in the Heisman Trophy voting.

Norvell and the coaching staff did a phenomenal job stacking the cupboard behind Jordan Travis with the additions of Brock Glenn in 2023 and Luke Kromenhoek in 2024. The exit of Tate Rodemaker meant FSU's QB room had two scholarship players and two career start going into spring camp if they didn't bring in a transfer portal QB. Enter DJ Uiagalelei, former Clemson and Oregon State starting QB. Uiagalelei enrolled this spring and has participated in the Tour of Duty workouts. A former five-star recruit, Uiagalelei brings a ton of starting experience and a lot of physical tools to an FSU lineup with an experienced offensive line and tons of talent at WR/TE positions. Here are three major questions about the QB room entering into spring camp.
