07:30 AM ET 02.13 | News that Florida State offered a scholarship to another recruiting class of 2015 quarterback came as no surprise to FSU commit De'Andre Johnson on Wednesday. The Jacksonville First Coast standout, who committed to FSU as a sophomore, said he had already been told by Seminoles coaches they would be offering other quarterbacks in his class, and he's not concerned. He also said any mention of him being considered for another position at FSU would be news to him. "I've only ever talked quarterback to them from the beginning and they have said that to me all along," Johnson said Wednesday afternoon, shortly after learning of news that the Seminoles had offered fellow 2015 QB Deondre Francois of Orlando Olympia. "It's always been said to me that I was a hand-picked guy by head coach Jimbo Fisher."

2015? He should invite some interest from Butch and the Volunteers coaching staff. If he's got the goods and the grades, he'll get the best chance to earn playing time.

"the best chance to earn playing time" ... with 32 incoming players in the 2014 class who will be chomping at the bit after sitting a year?

The Vols QB situation is an achilles heel. The need is great. Those inherited by Jones may or may not be capable of running the offense (To date, none have shown that they are). There are no 2014 QB recruits.

UTK's QBs on roster:
Justin Worley, Sr - never performed to expectations; injured in 2013
Patrick Ashford, Jr (redshirted?) - capabilities unknown; injured 2013 pre-season
Joshua Dobbs, So - smart, but didn't execute well when pressed into playing 2013
Nathan Peterman, So - epic fail vs UF in 2013; though to be toast
Riley Ferguson, So (RS in 2013?) - capabilities unknown
Tyler Page, So (RS in 2013?) - capabilities unknown; hopes may be hanging on him

Volunatic lives in K-town, knows the skinny, and senses the need for a QB upgrade.

Nice post, BR. Hansen's comments are dead on.
