A month ago, Bailey Hockman was competing for the starting quarterback job, but now he’s set to enroll at NC State. Hockman was facing the prospect of spending the next two seasons (at least) as a reserve with the Seminoles, and he’ll have the chance to compete for the Wolfpack’s quarterback job right away.
It has been a long road to make it here, but I am blessed to say I am COMMITTED to NC State, can’t wait to be apart of what is going on in Raleigh! Go pack!!! pic.twitter.com/dVfm4S3XX3— Bailey Hockman (@BaileyHockman) September 17, 2018
Hockman redshirted as a true freshman in 2017 and left FSU before the start of the 2018 season, which is why he’ll be eligible to play next year. He’ll have (I’m pretty sure) three years of eligibility remaining.
Hockman was a consensus four-star prospect coming out of high school, and one of the top 15 pro-style quarterbacks in the 2017 class. He had an impressive offer sheet that included Georgia, Alabama, and Auburn, in addition to the Seminoles.
With Hockman’s commitment, I’d imagine that NC State is finished recruiting QBs in the 2019 cycle.
