What does UK offensive coordinator Neal Brown consider to be the attributes of a great quarterback?


Okay, the main question for Kentucky fans remains: What will Andrew Wiggins do?

But for true UK football fans, there’s another question that is going to linger even longer without an answer: Who will be the starting quarterback when UK opens the Mark Stoops era against Western Kentucky on Aug. 31 in Nashville?

No, I don’t know. But here’s what offensive coordinator Brown says about the attributes a great quarterback should have in his system:

“Off the field things are the number one thing. He has to been a man of character. He has to be a tremendous leader. He’s got to work tremendously hard. Those are the things. Second thing, he has to be a good decision-maker. These are football aspects now. He has to be a good decision-maker. He has to be accurate with the football. Those are the two top priorities. That’s what we’ll instill in these guys, the three guys that are here. From a recruiting standpoint from here on out, those are the top priorities to look for.”

    Those are all good traits, but coach didn’t tell us much there. I will just wait to see who prevails as the starter.

    You are right Larry, kinda what would be expected IMO for all the players regardless of position.

    This is what I’ve read and heard thru interviews, per Coach Stoops Jalen Whitlow has the lead. Per OC Brown he hasn’t made a decision although he did qualify Jalen did look good out there on the spring game. He did mention all those attributes above that will make the QB the starter.

    Good luck to all three!
