NC State is adding quarterback Bailey Hockman, a transfer from Florida State.
Hockman, who last month announced he would be transferring from the Seminoles, tweeted Monday that he will continue his career at NC State. He redshirted last season and will sit out the 2018 season before beginning his career with the Wolfpack in 2019.
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 competed with Deondre Francois and James Blackman for the starting job at Florida State this summer. After announcing his transfer, he enrolled at Hutchinson Community College in Kansas, according to 247Sports.
ESPN Recruiting rated Hockman as the No. 11 pocket passer and No. 180 overall player in the 2017 recruiting class. The 6-foot-2, 206-pound Hockman joins a group of quarterbacks who will compete to replace NC State starter Ryan Finley in 2019.
