Big CFB Programs with the Toughest QB Decisions Entering 2020
If Michigan is going to take the next step forward with Jim Harbaugh as coach, the onus will fall upon the winner of this year's quarterback battle.
The pair of intriguing options to replace Shea Patterson have a lot to prove but a ton of upside, too.
Though Patterson struggled to be consistent after transferring from Ole Miss, he ended his career in Ann Arbor with a strong 2019 campaign, meaning it's going to be tough to replicate what he gave the Wolverines under center. Thankfully for Harbaugh, he's recruited extremely well at the position.
Will the quarterback be rising junior Dylan McCaffrey, the younger brother of Carolina Panthers running back and Heisman Trophy runner-up Christian McCaffrey, who is an elite athlete and has patiently waited his turn? Or will the big-armed, uber-talented Joe Milton get the call?
That's the question everybody wants answered, and it's going to be fun to watch it unfold.
Nobody is expecting him to be Cam Newton, but Milton is a 6'5", 235-pound athlete who can make all the throws and extend the play with his feet. He has the ability to develop into a difference-maker and has an extra year of eligibility than his contender for the starting gig.
McCaffrey plays a reckless, no-holds-barred style. He will have to play smarter with the team on his shoulders, but he can do a lot of things to help you win a game.
This will be one of the most fun battles to watch because the options are so different. Harbaugh has a difficult decision because both look like they're ready to help the Wolverines win.
After he replaced Chris Petersen as Washington's head coach, former defensive coordinator Jimmy Lake's first order of business was to secure the Huskies' quality recruiting class. He did that, taking care of things mostly in December.
Now comes the most important immediate task: finding the on-field leader for the 2020 offense.
With Jacob Eason electing to gamble on his talent rather than his pro readiness and head to the NFL a year early, Washington has to open the quarterback race, and it is as up in the air as any in the nation. If the Huskies are going to return to the top of the Pac-12, Lake has to get this right.
Though U-Dub has seen its share of transfers at the position recently (Jacob Haener to Fresno State and Colson Yankoff to UCLA), it still has a trio of intriguing options on campus.
The favorite, perhaps, is 6'5", 234-pound redshirt sophomore Jacob Sirmon, the nephew of former NFL player Peter Sirmon and son of David Sirmon, who played at Montana. He's a big-bodied, big-armed field general who flirted with the transfer portal last offseason before returning.
He'll have to beat out a couple of top-flight quarterbacks from the past two recruiting classes. Local product Dylan Morris committed to the Huskies as part of the 2019 class and redshirted while leading the scout team last season.
Ethan Garbers was the nation's fourth-rated pro-style quarterback in the 2020 class, and his brother, Chase, is already a starting quarterback in the Pac-12 at Cal.
Though this is likely to be a Sirmon-Morris battle, Garbers provides an exciting option if he develops quickly. Lake has a lot of good-looking prospects, but nobody is proven. It's time to see what they can do.
The game is still like seven months away!
How many fucking pages this thing gonna have by kickoff?
