The Miami Hurricanes have an interesting four-way quarterback competition brewing with spring practice beginning on Tuesday and plenty of excitement surrounds redshirt freshman N’Kosi Perry.
The former 4-star recruit is an incredible athlete and with Malik Rosier struggling down the stretch, plenty of fans are eager to see what he can do this spring. However, Miami offensive coordinator Thomas Brown is tempering expectations despite a solid first day of practice.
“He’s been good,” Brown said according to Christopher Stock of Inside The U. “Obviously more relaxed, he’s been in a year in the system, obviously when he came in as a freshman there were high expectations for him and there should be.
“He looked pretty good today, but it’s day one. I don’t get too excited in shorts.”
Rosier is the incumbent starter and it’s become clear that Mark Richt is going to give him every opportunity to keep that job. However, Perry, early enrollee Jarren Williams and, to a lesser extent, Cade Weldon are all going to get shots to earn meaningful reps.
Perry potential to change games with his legs and his arms along with the fact that he’s been in the program for a year (as opposed to Williams, who arrived on campus in January) likely give him the best chance of challenging. But expect him to have to do a lot when it matters with pads on to chase down Rosier.
