Kaaya’s departure sparks most crowded Miami QB competition in recent memory

Ideally, this would have been easy for the Hurricanes.

Had Brad Kaaya stayed another year, he would have been the driving force of an offense that was good enough, combined with a stellar, still-improving defense, to challenge for a long-awaited ACC title and a spot in the playoff. That would have allowed Miami’s young quarterbacks — 2016 signee Jack Allison and 2017 signees N’Kosi Perry and Cade Weldon — to grow, sort out a pecking order and carry the reins in 2018. That year, Miami opens with LSU in a neutral-site showcase at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. An ACC champion, returning most of its defense and offensive skill players, taking the wraps off a ready-to-shine quarterback. It would have been great television, for sure.

But no. Kaaya left for the NFL, leaving his senior year on the table, and Miami is gearing up for one heck of a quarterback competition this spring.

And then another, more intense round in fall camp.
