USU QB situation ranked 7th best in country

Utah State should be in good hands at the quarterback position this season, good enough to be ranked seventh best in the country by NFL.com.

With the return of Chuckie Keeton and the depth provided by Darrell Garretson’s play after Keeton was injured, NFL.com college football writer Mike Huguenin ranked the Aggies just behind programs like Florida State and Jameis Winston, Oregon and Marcus Mariota, and UCLA and Brett Hundley.

BYU came in at 23rd overall, with Huguenin calling junior Taysom Hill "one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the nation."

Utah fared the worst of all three, ranking 60th after Travis Wilson’s health issues last season and the unknown commodities in Kendal Thompson and Conner Manning.
