I’m excited to announce that I’ll be playing my final year of college football at Florida State. Go Noles.

I really didn’t expect Hornibrook to land at such a big program. He was 26-6 as a starter in Madison, which is impressive.

Still, I anticipated he’d land at a much smaller program. Going from the Badgers to FSU is a very solid move. (RELATED: Wisconsin Transfer Quarterback Alex Hornibrook Visits Florida State)

FSU had a down season last year, but they’re still a traditionally strong program.

Now, we’ll have to wait and see what he can do for FSU. The Seminoles need a quarterback, and they clearly felt like Hornibrook was their best option in the transfer market.

Welcome to the world of college football. One day you’re starting for a Big Ten powerhouse and the next season you’re playing in the ACC.
