Miami names Jarren Williams as starting QB for opener against Florida

Redshirt freshman Jarren Williams has been declared the victor of the three-player quarterback competition.

For those of you that may have missed it, Martell took what was deemed a shot by many at Fields, weeks before the ex Bulldog transferred to Ohio State.

We ask Rivals.com National Recruiting Director Mike Farrell if he's surprised by Miami's decision to start Williams over Perry and Martell and to offer his thoughts on how he sees the Hurricanes' quarterback situation playing out through this season. On Monday, Miami announced that redshirt freshman Jarren Williams will start against Florida.

"All three guys showed tremendous improvement and development, which is a credit to their hard work and the work of Dan Enos and his offensive staff", said Diaz in a release.

"As we move into preparation for the Florida game we will continue the competition to determine who will serve as the backup quarterback".

He appeared in one game for Miami past year, scoring a touchdown on the ground in a win over Savannah State. He completed 1 of 3 passes for 17 yards against Savannah State and rushed for a touchdown in a 77-0 Miami win.

Former Ohio State backup quarterback Tate Martell is still competing at the University of Miami for the starting quarterback job. One example is when he sent a subtweet to Fields as the QB was pondering a transfer to Ohio State. In a statement distributed by the school, Williams said "it means the world" to be Miami's starter.

As for the actual starting quarterback at Miami, Williams should provide an interesting spark. When I was six years old, I used to sit in front of the TV and watch Michael Vick play.

Miami has named its starting quarterback for its season opener against Florida on August 24, and it's not the name everybody was expecting heading into the camp.
