Tommy Bowden considers Florida State’s Deondre Francois to be a better passer than Alabama’s Jalen Hurts.
Speaking to Mark Heim on WNSP-FM on Thursday, the former Clemson coach broke down the quarterbacks and gave an interesting opinion. As you can see in his explanation below, Bowden favors Francois as a passer, which helps influences the former coach’s vision of how the monster season opener between the Seminoles and Crimson Tide might go down on Sept. 2 at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
“Jalen Hurts is not a good a passer as Deondre Francois,” Bowden told Heim, via a post on AL.com. “But, if they can run it without putting the burden on his shoulders, the advantage goes to Alabama. … If Deondre Francois can pass the ball and efficiently move it, I think advantage goes to Florida State.”
Francois threw for 3,350 yards with 20 touchdowns and 7 interceptions last season. He finished the year with a 58.8 completion percentage in 400 throws.
Hurts, meanwhile, closed with 2,780 yards passing with 23 touchdowns and 9 interceptions. He completed 62.8 percent of his passes.
It will be fun to see these stars showcase their skills on a huge stage. The wait almost is over.
