Lane Kiffin is already recruiting for FAU, signing a former Florida State quarterback Wednesday.
East Mississippi C.C. QB De’Andre Johnson has signed his letter of intent with the Owls, according to 247Sports’ Ryan Bartow. The 3-star quarterback signed with Florida State out of high school in 2015. He was dismissed from the team in 2015 after a video surfaced that showed him punching a female Florida State student at a bar.
Johnson is the second-ranked pro-style JUCO quarterback in the country. He will enroll at FAU in January and will be able to play immediately. He has two years of eligibility remaining.
Kiffin accepted the head coaching job at FAU on Monday. He will continue to serve as Alabama’s offensive coordinator through the College Football Playoff.
Alabama plays Washington in the playoff semifinal in the Peach Bowl on Dec. 31.
