Missouri Tigers QB Trent Hosick set to transfer


With college basketball getting the majority of the spotlight with regard to highly regarded transfers this time of year, it is often that a legitimate quarterback prospect hits the open market, but that appears to be the case for Missouri Tigers freshman Trent Hosick.

Multiple outlets are reporting (and have been confirmed by a school spokesperson) that Hosick is set to transfer from the program after failing to secure the backup job to incumbent “starter” Maty Mauk. Hosick, who redshirted as a freshman in 2013, was a 3-star prospect by the majority of rankings services coming out of Staley High School in Kansas City, but when he was reportedly passed by two different quarterbacks (in addition to Mauk), he apparently saw the writing on the wall.

As noted by Kevin Flaherty above, there is certainly a school of thought that Hosick, who will have 4 years of eligibility wherever he lands, could be a potential starter at this level, and it will be interesting to see where he lands, especially if he intends to stay with an FBS program.
