Bama reporter thinks Alec Morris will be Tide’s starting QB

For the second off-season in a row, Nick Saban and his staff have to decide who will be the starting quarterback come September.

The competition is a three-man race between senior Jacob Coker, junior Alec Morris and true freshman Blake Barnett. Alabama.com reporter Matt Zenitz believes he knows who will win the spot under center.

This news may come as shock to anyone who hasn’t watched Alabama practice. Most believed that Florida State transfer Jacob Coker would win the job this year. Morris has zero game experience, but has been rumored to be the most impressive of the three so far in camp.

Zenitz also added that he thinks that true freshman Blake Barnett could eventually end up taking the reins at QB.

The Crimson Tide haven’t come into a season with this many uncertainties in a very long time. If Saban and Kiffin are shuffling quarterbacks in and out of the starting lineup, Alabama may be in for a rough year.
