FSU's Martin 1st coach in any college sport with 2,000 wins

Former Wisconsin quarterback Alex Hornibrook says he is transferring to Florida State. He was bothered by back and head injuries previous year, and completed just over 59 percent of his passes for 1,532 yards with 13 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in nine games. As a graduate transfer, Hornibrook will be eligible immediately.

Hornibrook was 26-6 as the Badgers' starter.


What this move does is give Taggart and FSU football that much needed quarterback depth that people have been freaking out about and accusing the Seminoles of not being ready for. In 2017, he took the reins full-time and threw for 2,644 yards, 25 touchdowns and 15 interceptions, including an awesome performance - 258 yards and four touchdowns - in Wisconsin's Orange Bowl victory over Miami. 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.


He followed that season up with 13 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 2018 and was replaced by Jack Coan as Hornibrook dealt with injuries. Another transfer, Jordan Travis from Louisville, must sit out next season because of NCAA rules but is attempting to get a waiver for immediate eligibility.

After Francois was dismissed following the 2019 season, Blackmon entered spring as the only quarterback with college experience on the Seminoles roster.
