CHARLOTTE, NC - DECEMBER 02: Malik Rosier /

Perry enters the 2018 after redshirting last season. That gave the Redshirt Freshman from Vanguard High School a chance to sit, observe and learn the offense. Williams is reportedly very mature for a Freshman and is also expected to be in the mix with Rosier and Perry to challenge for the starting spot.

In the interview with ESPN’s David Hale, Richt discussed how secure Rosier is as the starting quarterback, is there a competition and how much Perry has grown in the past year.

So Malik Rosier. Is he your quarterback? Is there a competition? How secure is that job?

"Richt: Malik is the starting quarterback, for sure. Someone’s got to dethrone him. Someone’s got to beat him out if that’s going to happen. It’s not like — to say it’s wide open, every position is wide open because we want a competition at every level. Every player that comes back talks about the greatest competition they had was on the practice field. And I also want to go into this season with a sort of first-year mentality. Let’s go compete. Show us you’re ready to take somebody’s job. But Malik is the starting quarterback, and he’s going to be unless somebody knocks him off the perch."
