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.
