A former 4-star quarterback is reportedly on the move. Florida State backup Bailey Hockman has reportedly decided to transfer from the Seminoles program ahead of the 2018 season.

According to multiple reports, Hockman was a no-show for Florida State's practice on Friday. The school has since confirmed he's decided to leave the program.

The move comes as a surprise after Hockman made these comments earlier in the week. "Coach Tagg brought us three in a meeting...and said 'Deondre, you're going to take the first snap,’" Hockman said on Thursday.

"Of course we were upset at first, but man, it's about winning ball games. And whoever gives us the best chance to win is what I think is right. I'll do whatever I can to help this team."

Hockman is a former four-star quarterback from the 2017 class. He was the No. 11 pro-style quarterback from that class.

He spent the 2017 season on the scout team as a redshirt freshman.
