TALLAHASSEE, FL - OCTOBER 7: Quarterback Malik Rosier /

The past week has been full of controversy for the Miami Hurricanes quarterbacks. Now it’s come to light that Miami Freshman tight end Brevin Jordan stated on Social Media that Senior Malik Rosier will start at QB in the Pinstripe Bowl.

In the middle of last week during the height of the three day early National Signing period, a report came out that Miami Hurricanes Freshman quarterback Jarren Williams would seek a transfer at the end of the 2018 season.

Late on Friday news broke that current starting QB N’Kosi Perry was caught in another compromising position on social media. Perry’s latest indiscretion involved a video posted to Snapchat in September that showed two unidentified people having sex.

The video was disseminated around the Miami student body in November. The story was initially reported by the student newspaper the Miami Hurricane., It was then picked up by most national and local media outlets.

Perry’s recent misstep has put in doubt if he will start or even play at all in the Pinstripe Bowl against Wisconsin next week. In the past, especially under current Miami Head Coach Mark Richt, the Hurricanes have left players home who are suspended for games away from Hard Rock Stadium.

Perry, Williams and Redshirt Freshman quarterback Cade Weldon all missed games this season because of suspension. Perry was suspended for the season opener in Arlington, Texas against LSU, Williams didn’t travel with Miami for their victory at Virginia Tech and Weldon had a four-game suspension in the middle of the season.

The Miami Herald’s Susan Miller Degnan reported on Sunday that Jordan posted a video on Instagram that was recorded on the team’s flight to New York on Saturday for the Pinstripe Bowl. In the video, Jordan states that Rosier will be the starter against Wisconsin on Thursday. The video was posted on Instagram and Twitter.

According to Miller Degnan, Miami Hurricanes fans also on the flight asked Jordan who the starting quarterback would be against Wisconsin. Miller Degnan reported that the Athletic was the first to report the video at 3 AM on Sunday morning.

"“(Fan) “[Who’s] the starting QB?…His (Jordan’s) response: “Malik is starting in this game.’’"

Richt has not named a starting quarterback for Thursday’s game. Perry has started the last for games and practiced with the Hurricanes in New York on Sunday. With Perry being incumbent quarterback Richt might not feel a need to name him the starter against Wisconsin.

Rosier and Perry split the starts this season. They each started six games. Rosier started the first four games of the season. Perry’s hot start against Florida International earned the Redshirt Freshman starts in the next three games. Miami won over Florida State and North Carolina and lost to Virginia in Perry’s three starts.

After being taken out early against the Cavaliers Perry was benched the following week at Boston College. Perry and Rosier split the snaps against Duke. Perry followed by starting the final three games against Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech and Pittsburgh to finish out the season.

The video also potentially revealed more news when Jordan was asked by a fan about the potential of Miami signing top recruit Tyrique Stevenson.

"“Y you think Rique ain’t coming?,’’ Jordan…: “He not. He not coming.’’"

While clearly not as bad as Perry’s Snapchat video and his Instagram post earlier this season riding in a car with a wad of cash in his lap, Jordan’s video cannot make Richt happy. These are not good looks for the Hurricanes.

dark. Next. Will N'Kosi Perry by Miami starting quarterback in 2019?

Jordan’s videos are candid but are statements that likely should be made in private and/or off the record. The disclosure that Rosier is starting (if the statement is true) helps Wisconsin prepare for him as the Hurricanes quarterback. Information about recruits should also probably remain within the program.
