Jordan Gehrke could solve Colorado’s QB problem

|

The Colorado Buffaloes seems to just be a few pieces away from making a run in the PAC-12 and one issue they must address is at the quarterback position. Jordan Gehrke has stepped up and he looks like their best option, especially if graduate transfer Davis Webb decides to flip his commitment to Cal.

Gehrke took advantage of the spring game, which is exactly what you are supposed to do, and is now looking like a good possibility of being their new starting quarterback. Offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Brian Lindgren commented on his performance and said that he is great at scouting out defenses.

Jordan when he got here was very polished fundamentally,” Lindgren told the team’s official website. “The thing I noticed with him is just his understanding of defenses and what the defense is trying to do and understanding our system and how we’re trying to attack them. He’s very veteran as far as that stuff goes.”

Jordan Gehrke, a senior, threw for 170 yards in 2014 and 116 yards, a touchdowns and an interception last season. In the spring game on Saturday, he was 10 of 12 and threw for 126 yards and two touchdowns.

With Webb possibly on his way out and Sefo Liufau seemingly out of the 2016 season, it certainly looks like Gehrke is in the best position to win the starting job for the Buffaloes.
