West Chester native and Malvern Prep graduate Alex Hornibrook has announced that he will transfer from the University of Wisconsin and enroll at Florida State, writes Emily Caron for Sports Illustrated.
Hornibrook, who started at quarterback for three years after redshirting as a freshman, has one year of eligibility remaining. He will earn his bachelor’s degree from Wisconsin in May.
“Alex informed us of his decision to leave the team,” said Badgers football coach Paul Chryst. “We want to thank him for all he did for our program. We wish him the best of luck.”
During his three seasons at Wisconsin, Hornibrook compiled a 26-6 record. His .813 win percentage is the best for any quarterback in the program’s history.
After playing the first seven games last season, Hornibrook was sidelined with a concussion for an October game against Northwestern. He returned the following week but was pulled after he experienced recurring symptoms of the concussion.
Hornibrook participated in Wisconsin’s workouts in January, a positive sign following his injury-plagued season.
