For the first time since 2018, UH entered fall camp with the starting quarterback job up for grabs. Six quarterbacks have been in contention for the throne – three of whom have taken collegiate snaps at the FBS level.
With an expanded practice format, particularly at the beginning of camp, ample opportunity has been given for reps. A decision has yet to be made. But offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Ian Shoemaker says there’s one thing all the QBs have in common: the ability to grasp the playbook and all that’s being taught on the field and in the film room.
“These guys have taken great strides,” Shoemaker said. “What’s nice to see is a lot of the same decisions are being made. All the eyes and the feet and the decision-making are reflecting what is being taught. Now we can make a decision from an arm strength, athleticism, and accuracy standpoint.”
