If Kansas’ spring game were to be used as a barometer to gauge the state of the Jayhawks’ quarterback competition, it would read that Kale Pick is the frontrunner by a landslide.
Fortunately for Jordan Webb, that’s not how new head coach Turner Gill rolls.
Statistically speaking, Pick was relatively prolific with 214 yards passing and two touchdowns.
Webb, on the other hand, was positively pedestrian compared to Pick, throwing for just 46 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
Still, Gill was not in any way ready to name one or the other the starter, and will instead let the competition continue throughout the summer and into two-a-days.
“I can say Webb and Pick are the two guys,” Gill said according to the Topeka Capital-Journal. “They’re probably gonna continue to battle that out.”
One advantage that Pick has over Webb is the former has played in a collegiate game at this level, and offensive coordinator Chuck Long said that works in Pick’s favor.
“At least he was on the field in front of a crowd,” Long said. “Any time you can get a snap in a game for a guy, it makes all the difference in the world. It’s the youngest group on the football field for us, as far as experience. At the same time, they’re all young. We have at least three years with all of them.”
