2. The 2019 SEC East quarterbacks are interesting
The SEC East star has its quarterback situation in place, and Missouri needed to keep up.
Georgia will have the best quarterback in the division in Jake Fromm, and backup Justin Fields might just be the second-best talent in the division.
Vanderbilt loses veteran Kyle Shurmur after being led to a bowl game, but Kentucky welcomes back Terry Wilson, a former Oregon transfer who grew into the starting job and even turned into a bit more of a passer.
The Florida situation will get the biggest spotlight. Feleipe Franks will have the seniority, but the fan base and the coaching staff will want more out of the offense. Former star recruit Emory Jones wasn’t ready yet this season, but he’ll get every look in spring ball.
Jarrett Guarantano started to entrench himself as the Tennessee starter, but head coach Jeremy Pruitt will keep looking for a better option just like he did when he took over the job. As it turned out, Guarantano was the stronger play than Stanford grad transfer Keller Chryst.
South Carolina’s Jake Bentley hasn’t been around since the Lou Holtz era; it only seems like it. He’s going into his senior year and he should be among the SEC’s better bombers.
Missouri needed a guy to step in and be able to keep up with the rest of the division. That’s why Bryant brings. He gives the Missouri an instant plug-and-play starter to build around for the next nine months before next season.
