TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- As week three of fall camp begins for the Florida State football team, two things are clear; there's no clear-cut starting quarterback just yet and Deondre Francois is doing everything in his power to be that guy under center.

After a couple of off-field incidents this offseason, Francois decided on his own (at least, according to him) to move back on campus.

Head coach Willie Taggart has praised the decision throughout fall camp, but we've yet to hear from his teammates.

According to senior offensive lineman Alec Eberle, the move back to campus proved to him that Francois is putting the team first.

"I think it was a big step for him personally," Eberle said. "I think that was him showing the team like, this team is first to him. This program is first to him. He wants to do whatever it takes to make this team successful.

"He's an older guy, he's like me; I live off campus and he's just like me, he lived off campus like an older guy but he thought this was smart for him to come back, focus up and really kill my last season," Eberle continued.
