Malik Hornsby, former Arkansas QB, commits to new program
Former Arkansas quarterback Malik Hornsby is headed to Texas State.
The Bobcats formally announced the move Monday, welcoming the ex-Southeastern Conference signal-caller to San Marcos. It’s a good change of scenery for Hornsby in terms of being able to have the chance to see consistent on-the-field action, something he didn’t get a lot of over 3 seasons with the Razorbacks.
Hornsby, who returns to his home state of Texas, started his only game in relief of an injured KJ Jefferson back in October. It ended in a 40-17 loss to the Mississippi State Bulldogs as he completed 8-of-17 passes for 234 passing yards, 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions. He also added 114 yards on the ground.
How exactly Hornsby is utilized will be something to watch as he’s played both quarterback and wide receiver, projecting to do better at the latter position once he makes his way to the NFL level.
