Heralded recruit EJ Manuel will get his first start for Florida State on Saturday at Wake Forest.
The redshirt freshman from Virginia Beach, Va., replaces junior quarterback Christian Ponder, who suffered a dislocated shoulder in Saturday's loss to Clemson and has been ruled out for the rest of the season
The 6-foot-4, 225-pound Manuel, who was redshirted last year, threw for nearly 7,400 yards and 68 touchdowns in high school. ESPN
If you have been here from the beginning you will know that Bob and I randomly pick random recruits to be our favorite players in college football. About 2 years ago Bob picked some douche from Arkansas named DeAnthony Curtis, who I have heard nothing about, and I picked a stud QB named EJ Manuel. EJ was redshirted because Christian Ponder already had stake as the QB. Now with Ponder out of the question(he sucked anyways) EJ could be Bobby Bowden and Jimbo Fisher's last hope. My prediction Heisman in two years, guarenSheed.
