When the Miami Hurricanes scrimmage on Saturday there are a lot of questions to be answered. The scrimmage will be closed to the public, but the fans are clamoring for information about where certain players are at on the depth chart.

The biggest question regarding the Miami Hurricanes season is who is going to play quarterback. Miami also has questions regarding tight end depth, running back, their rebuilt secondary and which Freshmen are ready to make an impact.

Head Coach Mark Richt has repeatedly stated throughout the offseason the quarterback will be the signal caller who best grasps the offense and takes care of the ball. Quarterback and the secondary will both be watched closely in the scrimmage.

Miami lost four key players in the secondary last season. Adrian Colbert, Corn Elder and Rayshawn Jenkins were selected in the NFL Draft and Jamal Carter is with the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent.

The Miami Hurricanes have stars in Christopher Herndon IV and Mark Walton at tight end and running back. Behind them the experience is bereft. Walk on Malik Curry is currently the backup to Herndon at tight end.

Walton’s backups Travis Homer, Trayone Gray and Robert Burns are all unproven. Homer had seven carries a season as a Freshman in 2016, Gray is coming off of a torn ACL and Freshman Burns had injury problems in high school.

The quarterback position is likely to come down to Junior Malik Rosier and Freshman N’Kosi Perry. The question is also out there is Perry the Freshman who could make the biggest impact this season?
