Washington’s quarterback situation was one of the key storylines in the Pac-12 this spring, but it appears the Huskies will have some clarity before the fall. After missing spring practice due to an off-the-field incident, Cyler Miles was reinstated to the team by coach Chris Petersen on Tuesday.
Miles threw for 418 yards and four touchdowns in 2013, serving as the top backup to Keith Price. Price missed the Oregon State game due to injury, and Miles led the Huskies to a 69-27 win, throwing for 162 yards and one score.
The addition of Miles is huge for Washington, as Jeff Lindquist and Troy Williams have yet to throw a pass on the collegiate level.
Miles has some work to do in order to learn the new offense. However, he should provide Washington with its best chance to win in 2014. And with Stanford visiting Seattle this year, the Huskies have a chance to make some noise in the North Division – if Miles continues to develop after a promising stint in 2013.
