FSU football lands Wisconsin quarterback Alex Hornibrook

  • Alex Hornibrook, a three-year starter at Wisconsin is headed to Florida State as a graduate transfer

A 3-year starter for the Badgers, Hornibrook has more than 5,400 passing yards and 47 touchdown tosses to his name to go with 33 interceptions.

Hornibrook, a 6-foot-4 lefty, was a three-year starter at Wisconsin, compiling a 26-6 record in those starts.

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.

Since the tumultuous departure of Deondre Francois, FSU has been desperately pursuing help at the quarterback position.




Wisconsin began the 2018 season ranked in the Top 5 nationally, but finished 8-5. Blackman has tossed for 2,740 yards, 24 touchdowns and 12 picks over 15 games the last two years while completing 59.2% of his throws. In 2017, when Francois was injured, James Blackman filled in. He's expected to compete for the starting job.

With Hornibrook, who missed several games last season after a concussion, the expectation at this point is simple: put on a garnet and gold uniform and be on the sideline just in case.

Based on his time in Tallahassee so far, Blackman presumably has the inside track to start over Hornibrook - but at least there's some competition now. Jordan Travis transferred in from Louisville but is awaiting to hear whether he will get a waiver for immediate eligibility.
