Miami isn't the only high-profile school where the quarterback job is up for grabs. Five others:
Senior Marcus Randall (25 for 40 passing for 403 yards in '03) is No. 1 based on experience, but redshirt freshman JaMarcus Russell is the more dynamic playmaker.
Sophomore Clayton Richard and touted true freshman Chad Henne won't easily unseat poised junior Matt Gutierrez, who shone this spring.
Transfer Jordan Adams, who threw for 531 yards and four touchdowns in his only junior college start last year, will arrive in late May to challenge the slated starter, sophomore Joe Dailey.
Though sophomore Troy Smith is speedy and agile, classmate Justin Zwick has a bigger build, stronger arm and, as of now, a slight edge.
Neither senior C.J. Leak (brother of Florida QB Chris) nor junior Rick Clausen (brother of outgoing starter Casey) has distinguished himself, leaving the door open for a talented incoming class.
