Minnesota coach Jerry Kill named redshirt sophomore QB Mitch Leidner as the team's starting quarterback.
"He's the number one guy, no question," Kill said. Philip Nelson's transfer to Rutgers over the winter removed most of the drama from the QB competition, as Leidner was the only quarterback with any game experience remaining on the roster. Leidner (6-foot-4, 235-pounds) started four games in 2013, showing more potential as a runner than as a passer. Kill says Leidner is a cross between two star QBs he mentored at Northern Illinois, Chandler Harnish and Jordan Lynch. Mar 11 - 6:40 PM
