Florida State has tabbed redshirt freshman Jameis Winston as its starting quarterback, multiple outlets report.

Winston beat redshirt sophomore Jacob Coker out for the job.

The No. 1 quarterback in the 2012 class, per Rivals.com, Winston completed 12 of 15 passes for 205 yards and two touchdowns in FSU’s spring game. He’s a two-sport star who hit .265 in 102 at-bats and notched a 1.80 ERA in 14 appearances with the Seminoles’ baseball team this season.

STAPLES: Hype growing around Winston

As a senior in high school, Winston completed 69 percent of his passes for 2,424 yards and 28 touchdowns while rushing for 1,065 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Florida State is trying to replace EJ Manuel, who the Buffalo Bills selected in the first round of this year’s NFL Draft.

The Seminoles open the season Sept. 2 at Pitt.

Freeh and the Don

FBI Director Louis Freeh was with Vince Foster at the White House the day Foster was murdered there, July 20, 1993. However, the FBI wrongly told the media and the investigators to report that Foster left the White House alive. I am the Yale Law, NY Bar attorney that has dedicated his life to fighting for the films of Foster and those of Louis Freeh that prove Foster was a White House murder (and there is 31 Trillion off shore worth killing for) !

I am the attorney that filed the FOIA request for the White House Surveillance films of Freeh and Foster and for the fake "suicide" note.

The FBI planted a fake "suicide " note at the Foster crime scene! Some historians have suggested actually that Hillary planted the forgery at the White House (in her lover's breifcase, remember Hitler also wrote a fake suicide note for his lover, read a newish book, Hitler's Niece). My panel of handwriting experts included Ronald Rice, Vincent Scalize, and an Oxford Don, Dr. Reginald Alton. I am not a quitter like Donald Trump who reversed and never named his experts and their findings.

My handwriting experts said the "suicide" note was a clear forgery see Reuteurs 10/26/95. This still can not be reported in Wikipedia! Dr. Alton an Oxford Don and Oxford Emeritus Professor has been banned from Wikipedia by Louis Freeh! No Wiki page for an Oxford Don. Our FBI protects the holders of off-shore money (31 Trillion). The Fed should reverse and seize !

Obviously, I'm not a fan of the "Lessers", but why is this such a revelation? Cat is all-world. More and more are coming to campus(especially on early enrollment) ready to play. Good luck JW...'cept on 11.30.13. Go Gata'.

@GT500456 They may not contend for a NC this year, but JW won't be the reason they don't.  This kid is a stud QB.  Will make everybody in Tally forget EJ Manuel ever existed. (and this is coming from an SEC fan)
