How Utah’s depth chart stacks up at quarterback behind Charlie Brewer
Bryson Barnes is No. 3 on the depth chart behind Cam Rising, while four-star QB Peter Costelli could redshirt this season
Brewer ended up winning the starting job and Rising was named as his backup.
But this week coach Kyle Whittingham offered some more detail about what the rest of the depth chart looks like at the QB position.
Texas transfer Ja’Quinden Jackson has been sidelined with an injury and may not be available Thursday.
What is four-star freshman quarterback recruit Peter Costelli’s situation right now?
“Peter’s done a great job since he got on campus last spring,” Whittingham said. “If we have the opportunity to redshirt him this year, that’s something we’ll be looking at because the quarterback room is pretty solid. That could change due to circumstances. If everything goes status quo, it’s a possibility that Peter will be a redshirt candidate this year.”
Asked how Rising took the news that Brewer would be the starter, Whittingham said, “Exactly what you would hope. He was professional. He understood, but he was disappointed because he’s a competitor. If his number’s called, he’ll be ready.”
