​Despite three years of starting experience at ​Wisconsin and a 26-6 record, ​Alex Hornibrook is calling it quits in Madison.


The lefty quarterback officially placed his name in the transfer portal, indicating his time as a Badger is over.

​​Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst put out a statement that thanked Hornibrook for his contributions to the program and wished him well in the future. 

​​Hornibrook is an interesting quarterback. On one hand, he went 26-6 at Wisconsin and excelled in big games, including a career-defining game where he threw four touchdowns in an Orange Bowl win against Miami. 


On the other hand, he is...woefully inaccurate, by the numbers. With a completion percentage under 60 percent and 33 picks over three seasons in a super basic offense, Hornibrook's arm talent could generously be called underwhelming. 


And, of course, there was the nightmare against Michigan. 

​​While backup and presumed 2019 starter Jack Coan isn't exactly Peyton Manning, he looked like a much better passer than Hornibrook was. 


For Hornibrook to succeed at the FBS level, he needs to find a school that thrives on getting the ball out quickly and efficiently. While he certainly has a lot of accomplishments from his time in Madison, the former 4-star recruit's tenure in Madison could be called a disappointment overall.
