Or someone that isn't on the roster yet and will transfer in?

Luke Medlock transferred in from FIU..   on  FIU website listed him as a freshman.                                           
However on a SportsNation article it referred to him as a "redshirt" freshman.   https://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2015/3/24/8272131/florida-international-football-2015-preview-schedule-roster

would he qualify or ask PL for a 5th year eligibility?

I assume Smith has a slight edge over Ollie at the moment  as he appeared in 4 games last year and  Ollie  did not get any action. Ollie did however win multiple awards for scout team player of the week.     

As the previous poster mentioned   maybe a transfer or JUCO   could get a shot to win 2019 job. I think even a highly rated freshman would have trouble winning the job in summer camp (learning curve, comfort level with system etc).

The plus is we're a good program for a QB   we like to throw the rock downfield,  has to be appealing to a young gunslinger Smiley

Scout Team POTWAs aren't really an indicator of anything.. other than a great effort during the week and ensuring the defense/offense is getting a good look. I don't know what Ollie's chances are (maybe they're great) but I wouldn't consider this info when making an argument for him.

Have we moved on to next season already? I'm still waiting for my tickets for this season

ha.  Good point.  I was wondering who Anderson's backup was and it made me look up the roster where I saw Medlock. I then noticed he's a senior as well so it made me wonder who next year's guy might be.  Wondering how the backups are developing and also curious about what we may have in the hopper for transfer as well.

It's July so any topic is fair game .. let's hope Anderson stays healthy and we don't need to find out who his replacement is

+1000

the only thing I'd add is that let's hope we're up so big in games that his backup gets a ton of time.

I would hope there is no heir apparent. I would want an open competition with the best player emerging after a good deal of scrutiny. As long as we avoid injury, our back up Qbs aren't going to see much time. They'll have to win the starting position by playing their rear ends off in camp next year.

Open competition usually means you don't have A QB on your roster.

You're reading too many NFL previews.  This isn't the pro's.  In college, open competition means the best player will usually come to the top.

If you say so, but if there was an obvious choice, this thread wouldn't exist.

I do.  How could there be an "obvious choice" among a couple of guys who will seldom play.   It's football.  It's about competition.  They should fight it out and the best player is the starter.

Why state the incredibly obvious, when the merely obvious will do.  If a team has a QB there is no competition; works in law, business, education and I assume football.  But you are the expert.

I guess not. Have to brush up on my cliches and platitudes, or reserve that space for you.
