Top-10 QB recruit Bailey Hockman picks Florida State


Bailey Hockman has made up his mind … again.

Ten months after committing to in-state power Georgia, the Powder Spring-native, McEachern pro-style quarterback pledged his future to Florida State, in theory wrapping up a whirlwind recruiting process for one of the nation’s most highly sought passers. Hockman, a consensus top-10 pro-style quarterback prospect, decommitted from Georgia following the firing of now-Miami coach Mark Richt, and decided that Florida State was the right location for his collegiate future following unofficial visits to both the Seminoles and Alabama.

Hockman went so far as to declare Florida State, “the school I love” in a message about his commitment he posted on Twitter, closing with a classic “Go Noles”.

Of course, there is plenty of time remaining before February and National Signing Day, when Hockman can make his commitment official. At the moment, Hockman is the lone quarterback commit in Florida State’s Class of 2017, and he could be in position to compete for playing time in Tallahassee early in his career … assuming he does sign on the dotted line to link up with Florida State officially.
