Mendenhall Gushes About Running Back Jamaal Williams, Quarterback Competition
By David James
(KUTV) The second week of BYU’s spring football practice has made a few things perfectly clear. For starters, there is no quarterback competition. Head Coach Bronco Mendenhall and Offensive Coordinator Robert Anae said every job was open on the offensive side of the ball, but Taysom Hill has quickly asserted himself and is now getting the vast majority of snaps at practice. Cleary, as most BYU fans expected, the sophomore who started a couple of games last year, will be the starting quarterback next fall.
After practice Wednesday Mendenhall gushed about the play of sophomore running back Jamaal Williams. Mendenhall, who says he isn’t calling plays for the defense in the spring, has been watching the offense a lot and has been very impressed with Williams. The coach says running back Adam Hine has been almost as good as Williams. Mendenhall said last week BYU will need four running backs to play the high tempo game they are planning to execute this fall.
