Kansas transfer is Colorado’s starting quarterback

Colorado received a pair of former Big 12 quarterbacks this past year. On Wednesday, coach Jon Embree named one of them his starter for the 2012 season.

That distinction will go to Kansas transfer Jordan Webb, who beat out Texas transfer Connor Wood and sophomore Nick Hirschman.

“I’m not into playing games, sitting around waiting. I think it’s fair to the players and the team that when we knew, we let them know,” Embree said Wednesday. “I felt really good about it last night, slept on it, and decided to let it go out today.”

Webb, who had 3,079 yards passing with 20 touchdowns (and 20 interceptions) during his time at Kansas, was booted from the team in January by new head coach Charlie Weis. He arrived in Boulder in July after completing his undergrad and will have two years of eligibility remaining.

Wood left the Longhorns last year after failing to make headway in the Longhorns’ quarterback battle; news of his transfer to the Buffs came shortly thereafter.

Nick Hirschman was knocked out for the spring with a foot injury.
