Blake Barnett transferred from Alabama to Arizona State ostensibly for a better chance of starting, but he’s not exactly being handed the gig in Tempe.
Sun Devils head coach Todd Graham spoke with the media Thursday at a facilities tour and was asked about the team’s quarterback competition.
“We have a returning starter and he’s the starting quarterback until someone beats him out,” Graham said.
That indicates Manny Wilkins is the team’s starter as of now, though things could change.
“Right now, we have a starting quarterback and Blake (Barnett) knows he has to beat him out. I’m looking forward to see that competition and a very physical, Sun Devil tough training camp,” Graham said.
