With Jarren Williams injured, N’Kosi Perry regains Miami starting QB job

Because of injury, N’Kosi Perry will get a second chance to make yet another impression on his first-year head coach.

Coming out of summer camp, redshirt freshman Jarren Williams was named as Miami’s starting quarterback over Perry, the incumbent, and Ohio State transfer Tate Martell. In the Week 6 loss to Virginia Tech, Williams suffered an injury to his shoulder, an injury that’s serious enough to sideline him for this Friday’s game against Virginia.

So, with that, Perry will again ascend to the starting job for the foreseeable future, the football program confirmed late Wednesday morning.

As a redshirt freshman last season, Perry started six games, including the last three of the regular season. After a lewd video was posted to one of his social media accounts, then-head coach Mark Richt announced that Malik Rosier would start the Pinstripe Bowl matchup with Wisconsin instead of Perry

After replacing the injured Williams this past weekend, Williams passed for 422 yards and four touchdowns in nearly leading the Hurricanes out of a 28-0 hole against the Hokies.
