This past spring with Grambling, the redshirt senior completed 66 percent of his passes for 380 yards to go along with one touchdown and one interception in three games. He announced on March 24 that he was entering the transfer portal hours after the program shut down football operations because of COVID-19 issues within the program.
For his career, Hickbottom has thrown for 4,233 yards to go along with 48 total TDs and 1,234 rushing yards.
The move means Hickbottom stays in the SWAC for his final collegiate season and it is possible that he could play against his former team. Bethune-Cookman and Grambling are scheduled to meet on Nov. 3 at Grambling.
The latest Bethune-Cookman roster lists Terry Gilliam, Kyle Smith, Devin Black and Jabari Dunham as current quarterbacks.
