This morning Jared Lorenzen joined Ryan Lemond in studio, further spreading the football excitement with Spring practice only a week away. If there’s anyone as excited as the Hefty Lefty, it’s THIS GUY. Entering Spring practice, the biggest question mark lies in the QB position and their ability to pick up Neal Brown’s Air Raid offense. Lorenzen is probably the most credible source, having great success while playing in the Air Raid and also experiencing 3 coaching changes in his career at UK. Today J-Lo was asked about his opinions on the three QBs and who he thinks will emerge from Spring practice as the starter.
On Pat Towles:
“I’m lucky, for the fact that I know Pat and I know the offense. Neal has put his own twist on things and will run the ball a little more than when I did with Coach Mumme. He’s got the tools, and he understands that. I mean this lovingly, but will he grow up and do it? Now you’re out of high school, you’ve played half a year in college, now it’s time to step up and make those plays by becoming a student of the game. He can do it, I know he can.
On Jalen Whitlow:
I’ve said this a hundred times, I think he’s Randall [Cobb]. I think he’s one of those guys you can put in as a change-up quarterback. Let him learn slot [receiver] because he is too valuable to be sitting on the sideline.
Who does offense favor the most?
“Probably Maxwell. I loved what he was doing last year; up until he got hurt he was great. He’s a vet that understands what it takes to pick up a new offense. I just think this is something that he can really learn and grow into.”
