With Maty Mauk firmly entrenched as Missouri’s starting quarterback, Trent Hosick was hoping to be in a position to claim the backup job. With Mizzou done with spring practice, and Hosick not even in position for the No. 2 job, the player has decided to cut his losses at the school.
While no reason for the transfer was explicitly stated, Hosick exited the 15 spring sessions No. 4 in Mizzou’s quarterback pecking order. During the Tigers’ spring game over the weekend, junior Corbin Berkstresser and redshirt freshman Eddie Printz split the reps with the No. 2 offense while Hosick remained on the sidelines until after halftime.
Hosick was a three-star member of Mizzou’s 2013 recruiting class, rated as the No. 19 dual-threat quarterback in the country and the No. 6 player at any position in the state of Missouri. He took a redshirt as a true freshman last season.
