SAN MARCOS – Tyler Jones has been competing for his starting quarterback position since Everett Withers got hired in January. Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks coach Brett Elliott said on Monday’s post practice interview that after seeing the quarterbacks in the spring game he would expect Tyler Jones to be the starter in the fall.
“Tyler has done a pretty good job this spring, picking up the offense but we have to find some depth behind him,” Elliott said. “That’s the thing right now that we got to find. My mind is in that we have one quarterback and we need to find some other guys that will step up.”
Tyler Jones is favored over freshman quarterback L.G. Williams, Connor White and Blake Peterson all who were competing for that position as well. The only obstacle between Tyler Jones and a definite starting position this fall will be the competition against any incoming quarterbacks in fall camp. Texas State football has three practices left this spring.
