With two years of eligibility remaining, he has reportedly set his sites on two targets schools.According to 247Sports, Starkel is lining up visits with the Florida State Seminoles and the Arkansas Razorbacks. His visit to Arkansas is slated for March 1, while his visit to Willie Taggart’s team is set for March 29.“I scheduled a official to FSU for March 29th weekend,” Starkel told Noles247. “I’m going to Arkansas on March 1st. I have spring break in between those two and FSU has spring break, which is the only reason they’re so far apart.”Starkel saw his most significant playing time with Texas A&M in 2017. In seven games, he completed 60-percent of his passes for 1,793 yards and 14 touchdowns with only six interceptions.But Starkel was unable to pry the job from Kellen Mond, and was limited to just four appearances with limited snaps the following season.Florida State should be making a pretty big push for Starkel, as the team’s quarterback position is in limbo for next season. The team recently cut starter Deondre Francois following a controversial video that seemed to indicate violence, and did not secure a quarterback in the 2019 recruiting class.As for Arkansas, the Razorbacks went just 2-10 under Chad Morris last year and got only limited production out of their quarterbacks in the process.Suffice it to say, Starkel has made a rather savvy move in picking between two schools that are both eager to improve at the quarterback position.Stay tuned.
