■ Kevin Gemmell looks at the Pac-12 post-spring position ranking and starts with the quarterbacks. With the looming battle between front runners Jeff Lockie and Vernon Adams he rates them in the fifth position.
Is Vernon Adams the answer? Or simply a one-year stop gap? Maybe it’s not even Adams at all. Jeff Lockie had a very efficient spring game and has been studying under Marcus Mariota the past two seasons. And he’s taken full advantage of the fact that Adams hasn’t graduated yet from Eastern Washington and won’t arrive until next month. Still, it’s hard to overlook the seven touchdowns Adams tossed last year in a narrow loss to Washington -- a team with three first-round picks on defense and another second-rounder -- or the six he accounted for two years ago in a win over Oregon State. Whichever way the coaching staff goes, it’s going to be plenty of debate fodder for the next few months.
