Hendon Hooker
QuarterbackQB
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Hooker enters 2020 as a feast or famine option, seemingly stuck between taking a giant step forward or possibly losing his starting job. At his best, he's arguably the best dual threat quarterback in the ACC, running at least 10 times in all but one start last year while accumulating 18 total touchdowns in eight games. But whether it's a lack of confidence from his coaching staff or poor decision making, Hooker was often left to dink and dunk, forcing the ball downfield only when the scoreboard necessitated. He completed a mere 98 passes once assuming his starting role, and any early season struggles will likely lead to extended chances for Oregon transfer Braxton Burmeister or Quincy Patterson. The ceiling for Hooker could be 3,000+ total yards and 20+ touchdowns, but the floor could be he's replaced before October, which makes him a lottery ticket QB3 in larger formats on draft day.

Makes move to Knoxville
January 7, 2021
Hooker announced Thursday via his personal Twitter account that he has committed to Tennessee, joining the program as a graduate transfer from Virginia Tech.
ANALYSIS
Hooker will be able to compete right away at Tennessee, likely pushing rising sophomore Harrison Bailey for the starting quarterback job. Over his four years with the Virginia Tech program, Hooker appeared in 25 games (15 starts), completing 63.1 percent of his passes for 2,894 yards, 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions while adding 1,033 rushing yards and 15 scores on the ground. The 6-foot-4 signal-caller will have two more years of eligibility remaining.
