Florida State has landed Wisconsin graduate transfer quarterback Alex Hornibrook. Hornibrook committed after visiting FSU this weekend for its second Junior Day.

Hornibrook brings a wealth of experience and much needed depth to Florida State’s quarterback room. Standing at 6’4 and 219 lbs from Malvern, PA, Hornibrook is a former three-star quarterback and the No. 41 pro-style quarterback from the class of 2015. After redshirting his freshman year, Hornibrook took over the starting quarterback job for the Badgers. In three seasons the southpaw has accumulated a total of 5,438 passing yards for 7.7 yards per attempt to go along with 47 touchdowns and 33 interceptions. His best season was his redshirt sophomore campaign where Hornibrook led the Badgers to a 13-1 record (9-0 Big Ten), passing for 2,644 yards for 8.3 yards per attempt with 25 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. Wisconsin’s only loss of the season was a 27-21 slugfest to No. 8 Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship game.

That experience will be invaluable to the Seminoles, but it remains to be seen if Hornibrook will challenge for a starting role. Last season Hornibrook only threw for 1,532 yards with 13 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. The redshirt senior has one year of eligibility left.
