Wisconsin QB Hornibrook transferring to FSU

  • Florida State's Mike Martin, winningest coach in college baseball history, is first to reach 2,000 wins

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.

The Seminoles are in need of depth at quarterback. Hornibrook is a graduate transfer and will be eligible right away.

Hornibrook was 26-6 as the Badgers' starter. FSU now has three scholarship quarterbacks on the roster. Florida State is coming off a disappointing season in which it finished with a 5-7 record. 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.

That part is key for FSU, which had been dangerously thin at the position after dismissing starter Deondre Francois last month.

Hornibrook brings winning acumen and a lot of game experience with him, but Florida State's bad offensive line makes durability a question after he suffered a concussion a year ago.

The left-hander, who has had three wildly inconsistent seasons in Madison, will join Willie Taggart's Seminoles and compete for the QB1 job with James Blackman.

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.

Add another milestone to the storied career of Florida State baseball coach Mike Martin.
