According to a report from Sports Illustrated’s Wolverine Digest, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh has decided who his starting quarterback will be if there is a 2020 College Football season for the Wolverines.
Wolverine Digest writer Brandon Brown is reporting that Harbaugh is going with Joe Milton over Dylan McCaffrey… and it’s not close.
From Wolverine Wire:
“A source extremely close to the program says that redshirt sophomore quarterback Joe Milton is the clear cut best quarterback on the team and that it’s not even close.
If Michigan were taking on Washington today in Seattle, it would be the 6-5, 243-pounder taking the field with the ones.
That development is interesting enough in and of itself, but there’s a deeper issue here that seems to have been resolved. Giving the top spot on the depth chart to Milton took some convincing of head coach Jim Harbaugh, who maybe wasn’t ready to part with his pre-conceived favorite.
A few quarterbacks at Michigan have been pretty good under Harbaugh, but none of them have been elite.
Perhaps until now.
“Michigan has its game-changing quarterback now,” our source said.”
Nation, if there is a 2020 Big Ten season, who should be the Wolverines starting QB?
