There is still quite a way to go before the start of the 2021 college football season but Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh has revealed who the Wolverines post-spring practice quarterback is.
According to Harbaugh, Cade McNamara is the starter (at least for now), while freshman J.J. McCarthy is currently No. 2 on the depth chart.
Jim Harbaugh says Cade McNamara continues to lead Michigan’s quarterbacks, while true freshman J.J. McCarthy enters the summer offseason as the backup.
In his first interview since the Wolverines concluded spring practice, Harbaugh told “In the Trenches” podcast host Jon Jansen that quarterback play has been “really good.”
“Not a lot of experience, but Cade just continues to play well,” Harbaugh said this week. “He just keeps (improving). Continual progress from Cade. He had a great spring.”
“J.J. was terrific as a mid-year freshman,” Harbaugh said. “Got himself all the way up to No. 2.”
Nation, who do you think will be the Wolverines starter when the 2021 season kicks off?
