The QB position is going to be as wide open as it has been in years with the Miami Hurricanes. This was to be expected when the school’s all time passer, Brad Kaaya declared for the NFL Draft shortly after the team’s bowl win. Right now the competition is close, but no one has emerged as being anything close to taking the lead.
The Miami Herald has more on the QB battle:
One observer says Jack Allison has looked good and throws with more authority than the other competitors. Malik Rosier knows the offense well, and his running ability is an asset, but inconsistency remains an issue.
Evan Shirreffs’ accuracy has been uneven. Cade Weldon is still learning the offense and behind several veterans.

Obviously the real competition won’t start until fall camps being when freshman N’Kosi Perry comes to Coral Gables. As it stand right now, almost halfway through spring practice, Perry is in great position. Since no one is really standing out at QB, he has a major chance to take the starting job. You have to give Mark Richt credit though, for keeping the competition so open. It will only mean the cream will rise to the top.
