BREAKING: Rosier named starter

Miami announced this morning that Malik Rosier will be the starting quarterback for the opener against Bethune-Cookman.

Rosier, the redshirt junior, beat out redshirt sophomore Evan Shirreffs and staved off freshman competitor N'Kosi Perry. Rosier is 1-0 as a starter at Miami, defeating Duke back in 2015 when Brad Kaaya was put with a concussion.

Rosier came to Miami as a three-star recruit in the 2014 class from Faith Academy HS in Mobile, Alabama. He truly took control of the quarterback race over the two weeks with two good scrimmages, and most importantly improved accuracy.

Sources close to the situation say that although Rosier is the starter, Richt will not shy away from working another quarterback into the mix as well.

He was not the sexy pick but I want the kid to succeed for the good of the program.
 
Good for the kid! Hopefully he works his ass off and makes anyone that wants his job earn it. I hope he succeeds.
 
If Malik succeeds, we succeed. I'm all in with whomever our staff chooses. LET'S GO!!
 
As stated previously not the sexy pick but let's ride! Coastal or bust this year

Kind of what I thought would play out regardless who was named starter. Evaluation will be ongoing.
 
Just don't turn the ball over and put our defense in bad situations. Lets get it.
 
Congrats to Malik! I was in the starting Perry camp, but given the reports and stats out of camp, Rosier stepped up once there was legit competition. Go beat FSU!
 
Kid has wheels. Let's use them!
