With the dismissal of Deondre Francois earlier this offseason from the Florida State program, it was pretty obvious that Florida State was going to have to reach into the quarterback transfer market because James Blackman was the only quarterback with any experience left on the market.
They have found a guy to add to their quarterback room by getting former Wisconsin quarterback Alex Hornibrook to transfer into the program.
Blackman is likely still going to be the starter, as he fits the offense better and he likely has a higher ceiling than Hornibrook, but this at least gives them a backup with some experience in the event that something happens to Blackman, which is possible if the offensive line isn’t improved from last season.
Over the course of his career at Wisconsin, Hornibrook completed 60.5% of his passes and threw for 47 touchdowns and 33 interceptions to go with a quarterback rating of 138.1.
Hornibrook definitely wasn’t the best quarterback in college football during his days at Wisconsin and he was a little turnover prone, but he does have experience and the Badgers did win a good amount of games while he was under center.
