True Freshman Brad Kaaya Named Miami Starting QB

True freshman Brad Kaaya has been named Miami ‘s starter at quarterback and will lead the Canes on the field in the opener against Louisville on Sept 1st.

Kaaya edged transfer Jake Heaps for the job, and will start Miami’s opener at Louisville on Sept. 1.

“As I told him, he’s our quarterback,” Miami coach Al Golden said Sunday afternoon after practice, a few hours after informing Kaaya and Heaps of the decision. “He’s not a freshman quarterback. He’s the University of Miami quarterback.”

Kaaya went 23-3 as a starter in high school. He will get to run an offense that featuresDuke Johnson — one of the top returning players in the Atlantic Coast Conference — at running back, along with returning standout receivers Stacy Coley and Phillip Dorsett, plus tight end Clive Walford.
