Is it time to play Jarren Williams? Hurricanes coach Mark Richt weighs options with freshman quarterback

Is it time to play Jarren Williams? Hurricanes coach Mark Richt weighs options with freshman quarterback

After three straight conference losses, theA HurricanesA a€” and coachA Mark RichtA a€” are well aware their dreams of playing for anA ACCA title have all but ended. So whata€™s next?

There was, after Saturdaya€™s 20-12 loss to Duke, a lot of talk about pride, about playing to finish strong. And while thata€™s still a major consideration as Miami turns its focus to this weeka€™s game againstA Georgia Tech, Richt now finds himself having to walk a fine line.

Though the Hurricanes want and need to win games a€” ita€™s November and they still havena€™t secured bowl eligibility a€” is it time to see what more of their younger players can do, particularly at quarterback?

All season, Richt has alternated between veteran Malik Rosier and redshirt freshman Na€™Kosi Perry and neither has proven remarkably consistent or accurate. Rosier, who last season helped lead Miami to 10 wins, has completed 53.5 percent of his passes for 1,007 yards with six touchdowns and five interceptions, while Perry has completed 52.4 percent of his passes for 701 yards with 11 TDs and five interceptions.

During his weekly radio appearance with WQAMa€™s Joe Rose on Monday, Richt conceded he let Perry finish the Duke game in an effort to try and spark an offense that hasna€™t been able to score more than 14 points in each of its last three losses.
