Bailey Hockman has announced his decision to transfer from Florida State University after head coach Willie Taggart announced Deondre Francois would start game one for the Seminoles last Monday.
Hockman was in a three-way position battle with James Blackman and Francois all during summer workouts. He spoke highly on the competition and even after not getting the starting job, Hockman released a statement stating he will do whatever he needs to do for this program to win.
Coming out of high school, Hockman was a four-star pro-style quarterback with a 6’2″ frame. He was ranked the 11th best Pro-style QB in his class and with high expectations for himself he expected to get the start after redshirting his freshman year.
In high school, Hockman combined for 6,058 total yards, 63 touchdowns, 17 interceptions, averaged 209 passing yards a game and completed 52.7% of passes as a three-year varsity starter.
With Hockman transferring that leaves the Seminoles football team with only two quarterbacks on scholarship this season.
This story will be updated when more information as to where Hockman will transfer is released.
