Jack Plummer was Louisville’s Quarterback in 2023 and there weren’t a lot of snaps elsewhere on the roster. As a result, we don’t really know a lot about Harrison Bailey, Pierce Clarkson or Brady Allen. How have they progressed? Are they close to being able to take the reigns of a team that wants to go back to Charlotte and beyond in 2024? We don’t know.

What we do know is that all 3 of those guys are former 4-star Quarterbacks coming out of high school. Harrison Bailey spent 2 years at Tennessee and a year at UNLV. Brady Allen was with Jeff Brohm last season at Purdue and this year at Louisville. Pierce Clarkson was a true freshman for the Cards in 2023…… so how is it going? We’ll have to find out in the Spring.

But to buy a little insurance at this position Jeff Brohm went out and got Texas Tech starter Tyler Shough. Shough was lost for the year in Game 4 of 2023 in Morgantown at West Virginia with a broken leg. Shough had an up & down performance in Week 2 vs. Oregon in what was a 38-30 slugfest loss for the Red Raiders. Shough also had an injury shortened season in 2022 in Lubbock but did win his last 4 starts against Kansas, Iowa State, Oklahoma and Ole Miss (2022 Texas Bowl). Shough was Justin Herbert’s backup at Oregon and in 2020 led the Ducks to the Pac-12 Championship in the 2020 shortened season and ultimately lost to Iowa State in the Fiesta Bowl.

It stands to reason that Shough will ultimately win the starting job. BUT…. I don’t think that’s slam dunk. Firstly, Shough has to prove to be healthy. Secondly in his games at Texas Tech turnovers were an issue in 2023 against Oregon (3 INTs). Again this is a position where Jeff Brohm and staff can’t afford to take the field with questions. If Brohm doesn’t see what he needs in the Spring, he may go shopping again. It would be in everyone’s best interest if someone STEPS UP and takes control of this job for 2024.
