COLLEGE FOOTBALL QB REPORT
Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham said QB Cam Rising (Stats) is still a limited participant during practice, according to Salt Lake Tribune’s Josh Newman. We’re a little more than three weeks away from the Utes’ Week 1 matchup with Florida as Rising recovers from a torn ACL in the Rose Bowl. Whittingham also said he hopes to have a QB pecking order by Monday as Bryson Barnes (Stats), Nate Johnson (Stats) and Brandon Rose (Stats) battle for the backup spot.
2025 5-star QB Bryce Underwood (MI) could move up his commitment timeline, according to 247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong. Underwood currently has a commitment date set for Jan. 9, though it come earlier with in-state Michigan and LSU as the frontrunners. He is the only 5-star quarterback in the 2025 recruiting class according to our most recent rankings update.
Kansas QB Jalon Daniels (Stats) returned to practice on Tuesday after not participating Monday due to back tightness, according to head coach Lance Leipold. While he participated in some drills, Daniels was limited during Tuesday’s session, which may just precautionary at this point. It’s not an ideal story a few weeks before the season starts, but there’s no reason to think Daniels is in danger of missing any game action. If he’s out, Jason Bean (Stats) is next in line to start after filling in last season when he completed 64% of passes for 1,280 yards with 14 TDs and 4 INTs.
DEPTH CHART & INJURY REPORT
Washington QB Michael Penix Jr. (Stats) sat out of scrimmage drills for the second consecutive day, according to Seattle Times’ Mike Vorel. The reason for why Penix has been sitting out of certain drills is unclear, though head coach Kalen DeBoer said there’s no reason to be concerned. If there was any question to what the depth chart looks like, Dylan Morris (Stats) worked with the first team, while true freshman Austin Mack (Stats) saw second-team work with Penix on the sidelines.
