As the football class of 2020 continues to develop, their third commitment is dual-threat high school quarterback Anthony Romphf who announced the news Tuesday on Twitter.


This could easily be the most impressive recruitment in this class for head coach Lane Kiffin and the Owls due to his upside at the position and he can possibly be the cornerstone for the offense in the future. He has a great arm with 4.5 speed which makes him a potential to run the ball at any moment.


Romphf, a six-foot, 180 pound quarterback from Southfield, Michigan received offers from schools like Michigan State, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Rutgers, Boston College, Louisville and more. The Southfield High School for the Arts & Technology signal caller is ranked as the No. 24 dual-threat quarterback in the country by 247Sports.


Why did he pick FAU over such big schools? According to Allen Trieu at 247sports.com, Romphf and his father visited the campus twice and said those meetups with the coaches sealed the deal.


Besides calling FAU “beautiful” and a “paradise,” one of the main reasons he committed is the chance to step in as a true freshman and compete for the starting job. However, it is important to note that the three-star prospect won’t play immediately since he is a high school senior and he can’t sign officially until December.


Kiffin still has yet to decide who will be the starting quarterback this fall. Right now, FAU currently has Indiana transfer Nick Tronti and Justin Agner competing while they still have redshirt freshman Cordel Littlejohn and incoming freshman Javon Posey.


Chris Robison is suspended indefinitely and former FSU quarterback Deondre Francois still intends to walk-on for FAU.
