12 Days Until Spring Practice: QB Reps

I like the way Virginia Tech’s roster looks at quarterback. The Hokies have two older, experienced guys who can compete for the starting job. They also have two younger players with upside who will get plenty of reps, but who won’t have to be forced into the action before they are ready. Tech’s quarterback roster, which was almost entirely built by Scot Loeffler, is ideal.

Theoretically, every spot on the depth chart is up for grabs, in my opinion.

#1 spot: Michael Brewer (6-0, 200, r-Sr.). Brenden Motley (6-4, 214, r-Jr.) will begin the spring as Tech’s #2 quarterback, though it’s not unrealistic to expect that he could get a few reps with the #1 offense here and there and potentially challenge Brewer. Scot Loeffler has said that he wants the spring to be an open competition, so I expect him to treat it as such.

#2 spot: Right now, Brenden Motley is the guy. However, if he were to somehow beat out Brewer, then the transfer from Texas Tech would slide down to #2. Also, I would expect Andrew Ford (6-3, 205, r-Fr.) to get a few reps with the #2 offense, just to see how he does. I believe he’ll remain at #3, but it’s not impossible for him to move up to #2 by the end of the spring.
