Plan on writing some of this through later with exact quotes, but some quick impressions from Kevin Wilson’s time on the Big Ten spring football teleconference.
Wilson said he’s generally pleased with the direction the quarterback competition is taking. He said Cameron Coffman is nipping at Tre Roberson’s heels, but that Roberson has made significant strides in the pass game. He continued to emphasize that Indiana needs to be better as a passing team and that an ability to effectively throw the ball will be required to win the starting job. He said there’s not a quarterback controversy (Dustin’s note: after over a year of covering Wilson, I’m pretty sure the only way he’d ever admit he had a quarterback controversy on his hands is if the QB’s in question were trying to determine the starter through fist fights) but that the competition is tough and that he expects Nate Sudfeld to add to the competition when he comes to camp in August.
Wilson also said the junior college additions have done a lot for the energy of the defense and that he’s seeing fewer missed assignments and better tackling. He specifically mentioned the performances of linebackers David Cooper and Jacarri Alexander — who seem to be the most likely JUCO players to win starting jobs — but also discussed defensive backs Ryan Thompson and Tregg Waters and defensive end Justin Rayside.
More to come.
