Hornibrook announces plans to transfer to Florida State for final year

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.

The three year starter for the Badgers has one year of eligibility remaining, and will fill the immediate Seminole need for depth at the quarterback position.

Kennedy, who is one of several Alabama prospects the Seminoles are getting involved with, already had developed a strong connection with Florida State linebackers coach Raymond Woodie. FSU now has three scholarship quarterbacks on the roster. 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. The Badgers finished the season with an 8-5 record. In nine games in 2018, Hornibrook completed 59.5 percent of his passes for 1,532 yards and 13 touchdowns with 11 interceptions.

Francois, who was dismissed from the program last month, was Florida State's starting quarterback in 2016 and 2018.

As a true freshman in 2017, Blackman threw for 2,230 yards, 19 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

Right now, it's a two horse race between Hornibrook and Blackman for the QB1 job in the wake of the Deondre Francois debacle.

Wisconsin and Florida State might be the most diametrically opposed programs in major college football.

It's a move that makes things more livable around the fact that the Noles have been waiting for word on whether the wavier for Jordan Travis would be approved, which it seems more and more likely will not take place and he will have to sit out 2019 after coming from Louisville as well as Wyatt Rector following his transfer from Western Michigan. Hornibrook missed four games with a concussion, and threw nearly as many interceptions (11) as touchdowns (13).
