Wisconsin Badgers quarterback Alex Hornibrook will transfer to Florida State University

After a weekend visit to campus, Alex Hornibrook, a graduate transfer from Wisconsin, announced that he will play his final season of college football for the Seminoles. He was bothered by back and head injuries a year ago, and completed just over 59 percent of his passes for 1,532 yards with 13 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in nine games.

In joining Florida State, Hornibrook will enter a quarterback room that is short on depth; he will have a very good shot at winning the starting job for a program that needs a boost through the air.

Hornibrook, a 6-foot-4 lefty, was a three-year starter at Wisconsin, compiling a 26-6 record in those starts. In nine games in 2018, Hornibrook completed 59.5 percent of his passes for 1,532 yards and 13 touchdowns with 11 interceptions. Last year's starter, Deondre Francois, was dismissed from the team last month. He threw for 5,438 yards, 47 touchdowns, and 33 interceptions in that span.

Florida State did not sign a quarterback in the 2019 class. The Seminoles opened spring practice this past week with two scholarship quarterbacks on the roster - but only James Blackman is eligible to play for the 2019 season. Hornibrook is the second transfer quarterback to pick the Seminoles this offseason, along with former Louisville quarterback Jordan Travis.
