Is Quentin Williams looking at a redshirt at B-CU?

Former Jefferson quarterback Quentin Williams signed with Division I-AA Bethune-Cookman in February partially because he wanted to play early.

The reigning Florida Mr. Football's path to the playing field might have hit a road block. An already-present logjam at quarterback just got even more crowded.

Former Maryland starter Jamarr Robinson has reportedly transferred to Bethune-Cookman. Robinson redshirted his first season with the Terps and graduated in four years, meaning he has one more year of eligibility and can play right away because he's transferring to a  I-AA school. Robinson started Maryland's first three games last year, but was benched for redshirt freshman Danny O'Brien, who won the starting job.

Williams, who guided Jefferson to a 15-0 record and its first state title while breaking nearly every state single-season and career passing mark,  has been taking snaps in preseason camp, but Bethune-Cookman coach Brian Jenkins said last week Williams might be redshirted.

According to the (Daytona Beach) News-Journal, junior Jackie Wilson and sophomore David Blackwell went into the preseason as favorites to take over the quarterback job.

The Wildcats are looking to replace MEAC Player of the Year Matt Johnson, who averaged 250.3 yards total offense a game, threw for 14 touchdowns and ran for seven scores.
