Why the Wildcats have a great signal-caller

The Pac-12 is known for high-scoring offenses and standout quarterback play. That’s the case once again in 2019, as the conference features Arizona's Khalil Tate. 


In fact, the signal-caller comes in at No. 4 in Athlon Sports' Pac-12 Quarterback Rankings.

After several seasons in the wilderness, the Pac-12 finally started to regain some respect last season.

Five league teams reached the NCAA Tournament, the most since 2009. Three teams were ranked in the final Associated Press top 25 before the Tournament. And two teams reached the Sweet 16 with Arizona losing to Ohio State and Oregon losing to eventual national champion Louisville.

The NBA’s early entry draft deadline has come and gone, creating enough movement to make us re-evaluate our early rankings for 2013-14.

Chief among them, we re-visited Oklahoma State after the Cowboys returned point guard Marcus Smart. Originally, we did not rank Oklahoma State under the assumption Smart, projected to be a top-three pick, would leave for the draft. His return makes Oklahoma State the early Big 12 favorite.

Even though coach Chip Kelly left for the NFL, Oregon’s offense is in good hands with quarterback Marcus Mariota. After earning Pac-12 Freshman of the Year honors last year, Mariota should be the Pac-12’s No. 1 quarterback in 2013 and could be in the mix for All-American honors.
