B.J. Denker took nearly all of the snaps for Arizona at quarterback this season, with redshirt freshman Javelle Allen getting some mop-up duty in a handful of games.
With Denker leaving, though, the Wildcats will have to evaluate a field of no fewer than seven quarterbacks with a legitimate shot at getting the starting job for 2014. That includes former USC quarterback Jesse Scroggins, who didn't play for Arizona this season, as well as Connor Brewer, who transferred from Texas and sat out 2013.
Additionally, Arizona signed former LSU QB Jerrard Randall out of junior college, and it has a commitment from 3-star dual-threat QB Brandon Dawkins.
The Arizona Daily Star's Daniel Berk wrote about the progress that highly regarded QB Anu Solomon made during his redshirt season, putting him just as much in the mix as anyone else to start in 2014.
Rich Rodriguez would like to see his quarterback field get much thinner during spring ball, with maybe even a solid front-runner emerging during that time.
