After video surfaced that showed former Florida State Seminoles quarterback De’Andre Johnson striking a woman in a bar, he was dismissed by the university.
Since then, Johnson has apologized for his actions and admitted that he should have just walked away.
However, his actions have already cost him the start of a promising college football career at a top school. So what is next for the talented signal-caller?
According to ESPN’s Joe Schad, Johnson is drawing interest from a small school in Mississippi where he would begin his collegiate career at the junior college level.

While the junior college level is not where Johnson could have imagined his career starting, East Mississippi is a very talented school. In fact, their recent success has landed the college two straight JUCO level championships.
Schad also adds that Johnson could decide to sit out 2015 to focus on anger management classes.
Whatever he ultimately chooses, he needs to think long and hard about his options in order to get his career back on track.
