Florida State is at the midway point of spring camp, and the quarterback competition between Oregon State transfer DJ Uiagalelei and sophomore Brock Glenn is still waging on as both players fight for starting reps. Although it has been neck and neck throughout the first nine practices, Glenn showcased his athleticism during Tuesday’s practice when he took off on a massive run while executing a read option play, which would’ve resulted in a touchdown.

Head coach Mike Norvell played coy when asked about the play’s design but acknowledged Glenn’s speed, saying they clocked him running over 20 miles per hour.

“He went over 20 miles per hour on that run. It was speed, athleticism — that’s where you could see the strength,” Norvell said. “That’s something we tend to forget, you know, when guys, as they go through the process of their career, you know, you see them get stronger, you see the agility improve, the confidence in movements. But yeah, he was flying.”

Glenn hasn’t been the only quarterback who has shined throughout the spring. Uiagalelei is steadily learning the offense and building chemistry with the team. For the first time in two seasons, Florida State has a true quarterback competition. Norvell said his knowledge of three separate college offenses, helps him in learning Florida State’s scheme and that it is exciting to see him progress throughout spring.

“He’s learned three different languages in the last three years,” Norvell said of Uiagalelei. “And there will be times where that helps the process just because of experience, but still, we do things a certain way, and we have a certain read, a certain timing, certain elements to the offense that I thought would be a really good fit for him. And just as you see him building confidence in that, it’s exciting. It’s exciting to see his growth. I think his consistency is something I’ve been pleased with the last few days.”

With only four practices left until the annual FSU Garnet and Gold Spring Showcase on April 20, the quarterback competition will certainly head throughout the summer and into fall camp.
