Two weeks in, and some of the QB’s are starting to stand out.

Week two of BYU Spring Ball is in the books, with 6 of the allotted 15 spring practices completed.

BYU has thankfully avoided major injuries thus far (knock on wood), and the QB battle is in full swing, with true freshman Zach Wilson one of the standouts of spring.

Here are the week two highlights:

Quarterbacks

Zach Wilson has been turning heads, and is showing coaches that he is in the running to be BYU’s starting QB this year:

QB Coach Aaron Roderick mentioned that Wilson looks likes he’s “been in the program for two years.”

Roderick also said he envisions a three-man race in fall camp to be BYU’s starting QB.

The three QB’s in spring competing for two spots are Beau Hoge, Zach Wilson and Joe Critchlow. With their mobility, Hoge and Wilson are likely the two guys who will seize those spots and compete with Tanner Mangum.

Speaking of Tanner, he has gotten a surprising amount of work an reps coming off his achilles surgery.

Junior QB Beau Hoge has impressed, and would likely be the starter if the season were to start tomorrow.

Roster Updates

A few more scholarships have opened up, as multiple guys have left the program.

QB Kody Wilstead and OL John Vaka were confirmed earlier in the week. Other guys no longer with the program are DB Garrett England, DL Kainoa Fuiava (already transferred to Idaho State) and DL Solomone Wolfgramm.

Interviews

Here’s a 5:45 minute interview with OC Jeff Grimes. The high standard has for this offense and accountability to which he holds players is apparent.

Kalani also spoke with the media on Thursday in this 4:46 interview. BYU’s quarterbacks were able to be tackled in Thursday’s practice, which Kalani addresses at the beginning.
