Four days after losing the quarterback battle to Deondre Francois, Bailey Hockman is transferring from Florida State.
Hockman was the dark horse in a three-way competition with Francois and sophomore James Blackman. A redshirt freshman from Georgia, Hockman was a four-star recruit in the 2017 class but had his progress slowed by multiple injuries.
He and Blackman were both listed as options for the No. 2 quarterback, so his departure leaves Blackman as the unquestioned backup.
The No. 19 Seminoles open their season Monday night against No. 20 Virginia Tech.
