At Florida State: Has the size and arm strength to be an excellent passer...completed two passes for 21 yards playing behind Chris Weinke for the Garnet team in the spring game...enters his junior campaign listed third on the depth chart behind veteran seniors Chris Weinke and Marcus Outzen, but could redshirt this season...saw playing time in four games last year...was one of four true freshmen to see action in 1998...was named the most improved quarterback at the conclusion of spring drills last year.
