CollegeFootballNews.com Preview 2017: Independent Team’s Quarterback Situation & Ranking
Going into the summer, what’s the quarterback situation and ranking for every Independent team?
Not everyone quarterback situation is settled, but where does each Independent team stand at the most important position? The ranking is based on the entire quarterback situation.
Ross Comis was supposed to be the man, but he suffered a torn ACL. He’s back, but Andrew Ford put in a good year as the starter with 26 touchdown passes. At the very least, UMass has options to get the offense going.
And the starter will be … Andrew Ford, Jr.

The Black Knights have a great situation with a veteran in Ahmad Bradshaw to run the option and Chris Carter a good veteran who stepped in and averaged over six yards per shot when he stepped in. Bradshaw won’t throw all that well – he hit just 44% of his throws with four TDs and one picks – but he knows how to handle the attack.
And the starter will be … Ahmad Bradshaw, Sr.

It was a great situation last season with Taysom Hill back at his gig after getting knocked out in 2015, but Tanner Mangum was a more-than-capable backup after pulling off several magical wins two years ago. The 6-1 Beau Hoge needs time as the No. 2.
And the starter will be … Tanner Mangum, Jr.

1. Notre Dame
DeShone Kizer is a Cleveland Brown, and Malik Zaire is a Florida Gator. Brandon Wimbush could turn into a better college player than either of the two, with a huge arm and great quickness to get the offense rolling. 6-0, 205-pound sophomore Ian Book is more of a passer, and he needs time and work.
And the starter will be … Brandon Wimbush, Jr.
