Two Florida State Heirlooms Return to Market


Florida State is already on the hunt for two high-profile legacy prospects: defensive end Marvin Jones Jr. and offensive lineman Julian Armella. That number may have doubled on Tuesday night after two more heirlooms became available following an unexpected move.

LSU starting quarterback Max Johnson has announced he will enter the transfer portal. His brother, Jake Johnson, one of the top tight ends in the 2022 class, has pulled out of the Tigers. Max and Jake are the sons of former Florida State flagman and Super Bowl champion Brad Johnson. Johnson played for the soccer team from 1988 to 1992.

Max Johnson started all 12 LSU games in 2021 and has had a solid second season. He completed 60.3% of his passes for 2,815 yards with 27 touchdowns from six interceptions. Johnson led the Tigers to victories over No.6 Florida and Ole Miss to close the 2020 season. He instantly becomes one of the transfer portal’s best options.

Jake Johnson reneged on his promise shortly after Max made his transfer decision public. Johnson had been involved with LSU since April and was presumed to be locked up with the Tigers. That said, the plan has always been for the two brothers to play together at the college level. They will look for a new destination to achieve this goal. And a decision will be made quickly, Johnson plans to be one of the first registered according to his social networks.

The State of Florida could certainly use another stock quarterback in a room that currently expects to have just three in 2022; Jordan Travis, Tate Rodemaker and real freshman AJ Duffy.

The Seminoles have two tight ends engaged in the 2022 class; Jerrale Powers and Brian Courtney. However, Jordan Wilson graduated and Carter Boatwright entered the portal a few days ago. It is possible that there will be more attrition in the position or that Cam McDonald will enter the NFL Draft.
