Ex-Wisconsin QB Alex Hornibrook transferring to Florida State

Ex-Wisconsin QB Alex Hornibrook transferring to Florida State”

Alex Hornibrook is leaving behind the frigid winters of the Big Ten and will spend his final year of eligibility playing in the sunshine state after announcing he is transferring to Florida State Sunday. Willie Taggart's staff struck out a few times late in the 2019 recruiting cycle and also whiffed on a few other graduate transfers, but is bringing in an experienced player in Hornibrook.

Florida State's quarterback depth is getting a much-needed boost.

Hornibrook was 26-6 in three seasons as the starter for the Badgers, leading the program to the Orange Bowl following the 2017 season.

Hornibrook started 32 games for Wisconsin and threw for 47 touchdowns and 5,438 yards.

During the 2018 campaign he led the Badgers to an 8-5 record with 1,532 passing yards, 13 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions.

Add another milestone to the storied career of Florida State baseball coach Mike Martin.

Hornibrook joins redshirt sophomore James Blackman, Louisville transfer Jordan Travis, walk-on Nolan McDonald and recent Western Michigan transfer Wyatt Rector on the roster.

He followed that season up with 13 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 2018 and was replaced by Jack Coan as Hornibrook dealt with injuries.

It may not be the future at the quarterback position for FSU football, but for 2019 it's two steps forward from what things looked like just over one month ago.
