Former Wisconsin QB Alex Hornibrook transferring to Florida State

What does new Florida State QB Alex Hornibrook bring to the table — and how does he change the depth chart

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.

Hornibrook announced his plan on Instagram, posting a photo of himself with FSU head coach Willie Taggart and a caption that expressed excitement for the move.

Former Wisconsin quarterback Alex Hornibrook will join the team at Florida State as a graduate transfer this summer, he announced Sunday.

Hornibrook has spent the past three seasons at Wisconsin and was 26-6 as the team's starter. Taggart needed to add someone who will be available during the 2019 season, with the status of a couple traditional transfers unclear, and Hornibrook needed an opportunity to start as the last grad transfer quarterback on the market this spring.

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

He logged a career year in 2017, tossing for 2,644 yards, completing 62.3 percent of his passes (198-318) with 25 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.

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. Jordan Travis transferred in from Louisville but is awaiting to hear whether he will get a waiver for immediate eligibility.
