FAU QB Announces Decision to Leave Program

Florida Atlantic junior quarterback Greg Hankerson announced last week that he has made the decision to leave the program in hopes of pursuing his collegiate playing career elsewhere.

Hankerson, who was a two-star recruit for the class of 2013, fell behind this spring as the primary backup to Jaquez Johnson the last two seasons, as redshirt freshman Jason Driskel (brother of former Florida QB and current LA-Tech starter Jeff) overtook the No. 2 spot.

“We wish Greg the best of luck as he pursues the opportunity to get more playing time,” head coach Charlie Partridge said in a statement.

According to the Sun Sentinel, Hankerson is likely to end up transferring to an FCS program, where he wouldn’t have to sit out any time, per NCAA transfer rules. There are four FCS schools in the state of Florida: Bethune-Cookman, Florida A&M, Jacksonville, and Stetson.


In two years as a reserve for FAU, Hankerson completed 69-of-142 (48.6 percent) pass attempts for 642 yards (4.5 ypa), four touchdowns and three interceptions. He went 34-of-65 (52.3 percent) for 360 yards, two touchdowns and two picks in his two career starts against Rice (2013) and Alabama (2014).
