One of the things that Head Coach Mark Richt lamented in his first season was that the Miami’ Hurricanes All-time leading passer Brad Kaaya was a more traditional pocket passer. Richt was not able to call run-pass options very often. He was impressed with all four Miami quarterbacks’ ability to make plays with their feet.

"“Every one of these guys is athletic enough to make plays with their feet, and run zone-read, QB draws, things of that nature,…They’re all capable.”"

Rosier is looking forward to the season ahead. He told the Palm Beach post earlier in March that he believes he is in better shape after losing 10-12 pounds in the offseason. He said that he feels:

"“Faster. … I feel healthier. I feel more agile. I feel more explosive.”"

Both Jackson and Porter have been observing the Miami Hurricanes quarterback play closely this spring. Jackson some of his observations in the same article that Gauthier praised Perry.

"“Rosier has a solid camp. He made one of the best plays in camp, avoiding a blitz, ducking out of traffic and running for a touchdown of close to 40 yards. Jarren Williams has impressed everyone with his arm strength but must learn to vary the speed on his throws."
