Colorado Buffaloes head coach Jon Embree is facing life with a new quarterback this fall and after spring practice he still doesn't have a started named ... yet. While Connor Wood is the presumptive leader, he will battle with Nick Hirschman during fall camp. The two of them will likely face a third competitor in Jordan Webb, who is still expected to transfer from the Kansas Jayhawks once he graduates at the end of May, reports Kyle Ringo of Buffzone.com.
As Ringo points out, as well, true freshman quarterback Shane Dillon might also get a chance to compete since Embree has not yet definitively said if the signal caller will use a redshirt this year on the Boulder campus.
As it stands, the Buffaloes quarterbacks will have an experience gap until Webb comes in. One way or another, Webb will bring starting experience to the position even if he doesn't emerge as the starter. Webb is a 60.6 percent career passer for 3,079 yards. He threw for 20 touchdowns and 20 interceptions in two years with the Jayhawks.
