QB Hockman commits to N.C. State

Quarterback Bailey Hockman, who announced this summer he was transferring from Florida State, will play football at North Carolina State.

He made the announcement on Twitter.

“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 [sic] of what is going on in Raleigh! Go pack!!!”

Hockman was competing for the starting job at Florida State this summer with redshirt junior Deondre Francois. When coach Willie Taggart released the depth chart in late August, Francois was on top with Hockman and sophomore James Blackman listed as the No. 2 quarterbacks. Hockman announced his decision to transfer on Aug. 31 and enrolled at Hutchinson (Kansas) Community College.

He plans to graduate from the community college in December, then move on to NC State. A redshirt at Florida State last season, he will have three years of eligibility remaining.

Hockman, from Powder Springs, Ga., committed to Georgia on June 15, 2015, then decommitted seven months later. Eventually, he chose Florida State, which was coached by Jimbo Fisher at the time.

According to the 247Sports composite, he was a four-star recruit and the No. 11 pro-style quarterback in the nation in the Class of 2017.
