Senior quarterback Ryan Williams suffered a torn ACL during the second scrimmage, which will leave the Miami offense under the guidance of freshman Kevin Olsen or sophomore Gray Crow.
While both players showed a few flashes under center, neither Olsen nor Crow executed well throughout the spring game. Granted, the underwhelming efficiency was undoubtedly a product of Olsen serving as the second-stringer and Crow taking such limited reps in practices.
Brad Kaaya and Malik Rosier, a pair of 2014 signees, arrive in mid-May and will compete for the starting job. Per Matt Porter of the Palm Beach Post, offensive coordinator James Coley said "the best quarterback will win, regardless of age."
With that being said, Kaaya's eventual impact will likely not be obvious until the 2015 campaign. Learning the playbook, building rapport and establishing rhythm with receivers is not an overnight process, which is why Olsen has a major advantage over his fellow quarterbacks.
The redshirt freshman certainly improved, but his ceiling is much, much higher than his performance a few weeks back. It's not a slight on Olsen, he's simply a young player who would have benefited from chasing a senior instead of being the one pursued.
