Quarterback quandary: Kaaya may have to return for 2017 season

It all looked promising heading into the season.

If Brad Kaaya had the year most analysts thought he would, he would be one of the first players taken in next year’s NFL Draft. That would come after, of course, he led the Hurricanes to an ACC Coastal Division title — at least — in Mark Richt’s first season. His departure would sting, but a year’s apprenticeship would help 4-star recruit Jack Allison develop, and redshirt freshman quarterbacks across college football have shined, especially ones who enroll early.

If a miracle happened, Kaaya would come back and give Miami another year of outstanding quarterback play, while Allison and another blue-chipper, N’Kosi Perry, battled it out for the backup job.

The first two months of the season have muddied those waters, however.
