BYU Football Recruiting: Former Missouri quarterback Trent Hosick will transfer to BYU

BYU lands another commit - Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Former Mizzou quarterback Trent Hosick has decided to transfer to BYU. He will join the Cougars in 2015 after playing a year at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M.

The transfers keep coming for BYU.  Trent Hosick, a former Missouri quarterback, has decided to transfer to the Cougars.  He will look to compete for the backup role to Taysom Hill in 2015 and for a starting role against Tanner Mangum in a few years, when Mangum returns home from his LDS mission.

Hosick joins some other high profile transfers this year including Jordan Leslie from UTEP, Keanu Nelson from Stanford and Harvey Jackson from Nebraska.  Unlike these three, who all have one year of eligibility left, Hosick should be a familiar face for Cougar fans during the next few years.

Cougar fans will have to wait for Hosick  to arrive on campus though.  Hosick's twitter bio indicates that he will be a member of the Norseman of Northeastern Oklahoma A&M this Fall and then join BYU the following year in January 2015 with three years to play three seasons.

Going the junior college route this fall will allow Hosick to actually play this upcoming season. If Hosick enrolled at BYU for fall semester, he would have to sit out a year due to NCAA transfer rules.

Hosick is a 6-foot-1, 230 dual threat quarterback who had multiple offers from schools in the power 5 conferences, such as Baylor and Arizona State, coming out of high school, and ultimately decided to play for Missouri.

Hosick made his official visit last weekend to BYU and committed shortly thereafter.  It looks like Mitch Matthews was one of Hosick's hosts and he enjoyed the visit enough to make his decision to join BYU.

Vanquish the Foe's Kevin Schaefer spoke with Hosick last week before his visit, read more about Hosick and that conversation here.
