If FSU didn't add someone like Uiagalelei, the staff would have gone into the 2024 season with two scholarship quarterbacks with only two career starts between them. Brock Glenn's started two games as a true freshman in 2023, and Luke Kromenhoek literally joined the team over the last couple of weeks after signing during the Early Signing Period. He hasn't even taken a college class at FSU yet. There's no way FSU could have risked doing that, although Glenn looked improved in the Orange Bowl game compared to his performance against Louisville in the ACC Championship game.

DJ Uiagalelei has thrown for over 2,200 yards each of the last year three years. He's thrown for 43 touchdowns and 14 interceptions over the past two seasons. He's rushed for 764 yards and 13 touchdowns over the past two seasons. He's a 58.2 percent career passer, but I think Mike Norvell can improve that by playing to his strengths, unlike offensive coaches at the other schools he's played.
