Former head coach of the Boise State Broncos (2006-2013), Washington second-year coach Chris Petersen has expressed a three-way interest at the quarterback position to take the field this Friday against his former university.
Although imparting on a policy of privacy, Petersen also states that “…naming a starter doesn’t help us a whole lot.” Yet rather, fellow PAC-12 members, UCLA and Oregon, have done their due diligence in selecting their week one studs (Josh Rosen and Vernon Adams, respectively).
In Washinton’s menage-a-trois at quarterback are true freshman Jake Browning, redshirt freshman K.J. Carta-Samuels, and junior Jeff Lindquist, who completed 30 percent of his passes last season for a single touchdown, also finds himself in the mix.
On a side note, Browning (6-foot-2, 185 pounds), a graduate of Folsom High in California, capped off his high school career by surpassing 16,000 passing yards, while adding on 229 touchdowns.
Washington’s main man in the backfield last year, QB Cyler Miles (2014 – 2,397 yards, 17 TD, 4 INT), resorted to calling it quits from the gridiron due to a chronic hip injury.
