QB Trent Hosick transferring out of Mizzou

Mizzou Football Media Day

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.

A school spokesperson confirmed to both the Kansas City Star and St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Hosick has left the team and will look to transfer to another football program.

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.

    Quitter. I can only assume this kid was awesome in peewee football, A beast in junior high and the king in his high school and district only to get knocked down a peg or two playing with other “big shots”. Instead of facing the challenge and working on his skill set he tucks tail and runs. Mizzo Is better off without guys like this in the program.

    Or maybe he wants to actually PLAY football instead of watch on the sidelines with a clipboard. He realizes he’s not good enough to play at an SEC school so he’ll probably transfer to a smaller school. No shame in self realization unless you don’t act on it.

    Then why sign at an SEC school to begin with? The sec has a ton of 3,4 & 5 star kids who aren’t starters and battle for playing time. What if everyone one of them transferred as soph & juniors when they weren’t starting? My point still is the kid is a quitter. He committed himself to a school, coach, teammates and program and as a redshirt freshmen he’s decided to leave already cause he isn’t high enough on the depth chart! Imagine if you had half your 2nd & 3rd stringers running away like him! Quitter!!!

    He can go to wherever Beckham-Green ends up.

    Shame on you guys. Maybe the kid want to be a starter for three four years and he really doesn’t care that it’s not in the SEC. Time waits for no one. Mizzou will be fine

    @patbocam

    I would imagine he made that commitment based on a sales pitch that he would get to be the quarterback of the Mizzou Tigers…. He committed to a school, coach, and teammates to play football… He’s obviously not getting to play football as the 4th stringer. He’s probably just not good enough.

    So should he just wait around and exhaust his eligibility and hope something bad happens to the guys in front of him so he gets a chance to play the game he committed to playing?

    The kid wants to play football… he’s not going to get to at Mizzou, so he’s going somewhere else where he can. I personally say good for him.
