Another year, another troubled FSU quarterback.
Recruit De’Andre Johnson has been suspended indefinitely from the Seminoles team after reports that he punched a woman in a bar in Tallahassee on Wednesday night.
According to ESPN, Johnson and the woman got into an argument after he said she cut in front of him and an argument ensued. He ended up punching her in the face.
The woman declined comment when reached by ESPN. She was treated by police and security officials but declined further treatment.
Johnson, who enrolled at FSU in January after graduating early from high school, was not thought to be a leading contender for the quarterback position, where the leading candidates to replace the departed Jameis Winston are Notre Dame transfer student Everett Golson and returning Sean McGuire.
“It’s always been said to me that I was a hand-picked guy by head coach Jimbo Fisher, so that’s how it’s always been for me,” Johnson told the Orlando Sentinel this spring.
“You know me, I’m not going to make it easy on anyone I’m competing against. Bring it on. The more the better. That’s what makes it more fun.”
