A report from Jon Wilner of The Mercury News ranks the UCLA Bruins as the 10th “most comfortable” quarterback situation in the Pac-12.

From The Mercury News:
So many converging pieces: Carta-Samuels, arriving from Washington, where he was well-coached as a career backup; Chip Kelly, taking charge with his playbook and priorities for the position; Modster, ascending to a greater role after Josh Rosen’s departure; and touted freshman Dorian Thompson-Robinson, joining the competition. It should be fascinating to watch it all play out. The guess here: Kelly favors Carta-Samuels’ maturity and wants Thompson-Robinson to redshirt.
There’s a quarterback battle brewing in UCLA between UW transfer K.J. Carta-Samuels and Devon Modster. Both are solid options, but the uncertainty leaves questions unanswered as well.
Either way, Chip Kelly’s answer to who will replace Josh Rosen is a big first decision for the new head coach.
Here’s the full list of Pac-12 quarterback comfort ratings from Wilner:
- Arizona State
- Oregon State
- Washington State
