Malik Rosier led the Miami Hurricanes to their most successful season in 14 years. Miami finished 10-3 in the 2017 season, They won their first ACC Coastal Division title, had their first berth in the ACC Championship and played in the Orange Bowl.

In spite of that, there is no guarantee that he will be the Miami Hurricanes starting quarterback against LSU September 2. The Tigers and Hurricanes will play in the 2018 Advocare Classic at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas in a Primetime showdown on the Sunday of Labor Day Weekend during College Football’s kickoff weekend.

Rosier will face a stiff challenge from three Freshmen to hold on to his starting quarterback spot. Redshirt Freshman N’Kosi Perry and true Freshman Jarren Williams are the most likely to unseat Rosier.

Redshirt Freshman Cade Weldon has played well this Spring but is a longshot to become the starting quarterback. Weldon’s strength is reportedly his toughness.

Perry has been playing more relaxed and confident this spring than he did running the scout team last season. He still needs work according to the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson. Jackson was told that Perry’s arm is excellent but that his deep ball is not as good as Rosier’s at this point.

The coaching staff wants Rosier to work on his deep balls though. Rosier missed a wide-open Jeff Thomas early in the ACC Championship game.
