New quarterbacks and B-backs coach Craig Candeto said that ideally the No. 2 quarterback would be determined by the end of spring practice, but that the competition will likely go into preseason camp.
“Sometimes it’s hard to tell just in spring because a lot can happen over the summer,” he said. “Guys can develop physically more, especially when you’ve got some young guys in the mix.”
In the summer, both position groups will take on incoming freshmen who will also be given a chance to compete, Tobias Oliver at quarterback and Jerry Howard and Jordan Ponchez-Mason at B-back.
