The UCLA Bruins have been in a bit of a pickle since Brett Hundley graduated and left for the NFL and Asianti Woulard left for South Florida in July. They enter the 2015 season not yet knowing who their starting quarterback will be.
According to College Football Talk, head coach Jim Mora has not yet made a decision on who the team’s starting quarterback is for the upcoming season. Kind of cutting it close there, aren’t you Coach? He talked about his situation and whether or not he will use a two-quarterback system at the PAC-12 Media Days Friday evening.
“I’d rather use one. I think that is the most beneficial way to build your team and consistency is to use one,” Mora said Friday during Pac-12 media day. “But we’ll see. My gut instinct is to name a guy and support the hell out of him. That’s what I’ve tried to do.”
Right now, the quarterback race is down to three guys. Jerry Neuheisel, son of fomrer head coach Mike Neuheisel, Mike Fafaul, and true freshman Josh Rosen are all possibilities to win the job. Despite being a true freshman, Mora has the highest hopes for Rosen.
“He hasn’t taken a snap at this level. So I don’t want to put too many expectations,” Mora suggested. “I’ll let others put expectations on them. I think if Josh reaches his potential every day at the end of his time at UCLA we’ll look back and say he was a success.”
The Bruins open the season on September 5 when they host the Virginia Cavaliers.
