'Canes name Jarren Williams starting quarterback for week 1

It looked like he had an early jumpstart on the starting job - and that he would be reunited with former Las Vegas Bishop Gorman teammate Brevin Jordan - in operating the Hurricanes' offense.

In 2019, his turn has arrived.

Miami has picked redshirt freshman Jarren Williams as the Hurricanes' starting quarterback for the season's first game against Florida on August 24, the university announced.

"However, we feel like Jarren has the greatest upside due to his passing ability, his instincts and his determination", Diaz said. Williams was a four-star prospect in the 2018 recruiting class out of Georgia and was able to take a redshirt for the 2018 season since he only appeared in one game. Diaz told reporters in Miami last week that "when we get a guy, we're going to get our guy, and we're going to go play with our guy".

"As we move into preparation for the Florida game we will continue the competition to determine who will serve as the backup quarterback". In a statement distributed by the school, Williams said "it means the world" to be Miami's starter. But getting a starter picked solves one of the major riddles that Diaz and new offensive coordinator Dan Enos have been facing over the past several months. Perry completed 50.8 percent of his passes for 1,091 yards and 13 touchdowns and six interceptions for the Hurricanes last season. "I feel like I have gotten a lot better, but my goal is perfection and I am still striving for that".

What Manny Diaz whispered in Williams' ear shortly after Miami's scrimmage Saturday night turned into reality Monday when the 19-year-old redshirt freshman from Lawrenceville, Ga. was announced as the Hurricanes' starting quarterback for 2019. N'Kosi Perry entered last season with some hype after redshirting in 2017, but struggled in 11 games and never sufficiently wrestled the job away from Malik Rosier.
