This is one reason why not having an honest quarterback competition matters.
Here is Graham Harrell on freshman QB Kedon Slovis.
“Kedon is a special talent,” Harrell said. “When that ball comes out of his hand, it looks different.”
Who really cares if JT Daniels is the guaranteed starter? Why put any stock into what is said about Jack Sears or Slovis if they do not get a chance to win the job?
Harrell could say Slovis is the next Tom Brady and it won’t matter if Clay Helton has made a deal to start Daniels under any circumstances.
