It's really kind of dumb to RS a 5-star recruit, as they will probably only be here 3 years anyway. Otherwise, it'll be like Winston as FSU - they only got to use him 2 years. Stupid IMO - but hey - that what Dumbo Fisher does best.
That said - Winston might not have been a 5-star recruit, but they obviously don't recognize talent when it slams into their face.
The year he was redshirted because EJ Manuel was a SR that year. I also think that if Winston didn't get into so much trouble while at FSU, he wouldn't of been pushed out and would of most llikely stayed another year
