Missouri redshirt freshman quarterback Trent Hosick has decided to transfer, a spokesman for the Tigers said Monday via text message.
Hosick, a graduate of Staley, was a three-star recruit and ranked as the No. 19 dual-threat quarterback in the nation by Rivals.com when he arrived at Missouri.
He was listed fourth on the Tigers’ spring depth chart at quarterback and had worked some on special teams.
Hosick, 6 feet 1 and 225 pounds, was behind Maty Mauk, who solidified himself as the 2014 starter with a strong spring, as well as Lee’s Summit graduate Corbin Berkstresser and fellow redshirt freshman Eddie Printz.
During Saturday’s Black and Gold scrimmage, Hosick completed four of nine passes for 107 yards, including a 93-yard touchdown pass to Eric Laurent in the closing minute.
Hosick completed 16 of 31 passes for 206 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in the three public spring scrimmages combined. He also had eight carries for 46 yards.
He was The Star’s first-team All-Metro quarterback as a junior at Staley, racking up 249 carries for 2,054 yards and 31 touchdowns and competing 94 of 149 passes for 1,442 yards and 10 touchdowns in leading the Falcons to a perfect record and the Missouri Class 5 title. As a senior, Hosick passed for nearly 1,900 yards and rushed for more than 1,600, accounting for 32 total touchdowns.
