Morris picked as Miami’s starting QB

Stephen Morris went into Miami’s training camp expecting to be the Hurricanes’ starting quarterback. With more than two weeks left, the job is his.

Morris will be the starter when the Hurricanes open the season at Boston College on Sept. 1, having won the job over Ryan Williams.

Morris started the first game of Miami’s season a year ago at Maryland, filling the role when Jacory Harris served a one-game suspension for NCAA violations. He completed 19 of 28 passes in that game, and was just 7 for 9 the rest of the season as a backup.

Williams is eligible to play for Miami for the first time this season, having been redshirted in 2011 after transferring from Memphis.
