Who should be Alabama's starting QB?

Jake Coker was a highly touted transfer but lost last year's competition to Blake Sims. Alec Morris was the only quarterback in Alabama's 2012 recruiting class, though he has yet to attempt a pass. And Cooper Bateman only saw action last year as the holder on place kicks. Who wins?

Looking back, Armwood High School's 2011 team was incredible. Leon McQuay III (USC), Eric Striker (Oklahoma), Cody Waldrop (South Carolina), Jarvis McCall (Arizona) all scheduled to start. Alvin Bailey (Florida) expected to contribute and Matt Jones (Florida) is now with the Redskins. Byron Cowart (Auburn) was No. 1 player in the country this last year, freshman in 2011.

Saban: Won't risk naming starting QB too early

Alabama coach Nick Saban said he has no timetable for naming a starting quarterback and would not rule out the possibility of two quarterbacks playing in the season opener against Wisconsin.

Nick Saban wants 2 QBs ready for Wisconsin & have 3rd on standby b/w Jake Coker, Alec Morris & Cooper Bateman. “May play more than 1”

Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 

It's clear Nick Saban wants to name a starting quarterback but he won't rush it. He said he doesn't want to be in a situation where he wants to "unname" a starter. "I'm not saying we're going to do this or that we want to do this ... but we may play more than one guy in the first game (Wisconsin)," he said.

Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 

Alabama coach Nick Saban said the plan is to get two quarterbacks ready for Wisconsin and have a third on standby. The three in the mix are Jake Coker, Alec Morris and Cooper Bateman. "I've been pleased with the way all three guys have played this week," Saban said.
