How Quickly Does DJ Uiagalelei Adapt?

DJ Uiagalelei will be the likely starter unless Brock Glenn plays out of his mind during spring, summer, and fall camp. The experience factor he brings will not only make it easier for Uiagalelei to pick up the offense, but it'll give Glenn and Kromenhoek someone to learn from since they lack in that area. The fact that Uiagalelei has gone through the experience of leaving one program, learning a new offense, and performing well should bode well for his final season in college. Mike Norvell, Alex Atkins, and Tony Tokarz do a great job molding their offense around their quarterback's strengths.

The players have had player-led workouts, but spring will be the first time they have pads on and get into actual football situations. FSU has some veteran wide receivers like Ja'Khi Douglas, Kentron Poitier, Darion Williamson, and Deuce Spann, who have multiple years in Mike Norvell's offense. However, other talented guys like Hykeem Williams, Destyn Hill, and other talented freshmen are still learning the offense. How quickly can Uiagalelei form a rapport with those guys? It'll take a ton of reps to learn their tendencies, what they like to do situationally, and the intricacies of the offense.
