Wisconsin's Chryst announces Hornibrook as starting QB

Wisconsin's Chryst announces Hornibrook as starting QB

University of Wisconsin quarterback Alex Hornibrook was expected to be the Badgers' starting quarterback this year, but it appears he's already won the job months before the season begins.

UW confirmed Hornibrook as the Badgers' starter Tuesday, the day before spring practice is set to begin.

"He is the guy," Badgers coach Paul Chryst said in a story posted on UW's official athletics website. "He knows it and he thinks it."

The story also revealed plenty of other tidbits prior to the start of spring.

Rising redshirt sophomore David Edwards, a former tight end who started UW's last seven games at right tackle in 2016, enters spring as the projected starter at left tackle. He replaces Ryan Ramczyk, who left a year early for the NFL.

The Badgers expect Hawaii transfer Nick Nelson to take over the starting role vacated by Sojourn Shelton. Nelson sat out last year due to NCAA transfer rules and has two years of eligibility remaining.
