Jordan Hoy to Leave MSU Football Program

Posted: Updated:

Another quarterback has decided to leave the Montana State football team.

The school announced Tuesday that redshirt freshman Jordan Hoy is leaving the program. The move comes as a surprise to most, as the Rockwall, Texas native was right in the thick of the starting quarterback battle. However, it did appear through the first few weeks of spring camp that Hoy was taking more reps at the number two spot behind Tyler Bruggman, who recently transferred into the program.

The dual threat QB saw action in one game last season behind starter Dakota Prukop, who left Montana State for the University of Oregon right after Cats Head Coach Jeff Choate was hired to replace Rob Ash. Here's what Choate had to say about Hoy's decision to leave the program.

"I just think that through the transition it was pretty obvious to both Jordan and I that this wasn't the right fit. So rather then drag it out, he had some conversations with his family, especially over spring break. We had some conversations prior to that too. We just talked about how you can only do college one time. You don't want to lose an opportunity where you could feel happy and successful. He just felt like it was better for him to make a change at this point," Choate said.

With Hoy's departure, the cats are down to Bruggman, Ben Folsom and Brady McChesney at the quarterback position. Chris Murray is an incoming freshman who will join the program in the fall. Coach Choate says if they are going to add another quarterback, they will look for a transfer.
