Entering SEC Football spring practice, what were some of the first thoughts you may have had surrounding the quarterback position across the conference?

Obviously some of the top names from last season in Bryce Young, Will Rogers, and Hendon Hooker are all set to return this season, while the conference has also since added some key transfers to the mix in Jaxson Dart and Spencer Rattler.

While each of those names entered the spring cemented as their teams starter, there are a few teams however where the competition for the starting job could potentially be decided this spring, or at the least receive a clearer picture of who the starter could be entering the fall. Here are three of those SEC Football quarterback competitions to watch for this spring.

3. Texas A&M Aggies

Coming off an 8-4 season a year ago, the Aggies are set as one of SEC Football’s top teams entering the 2022 season, and are on the verge of being labeled a legit national title contender. When looking at how Texas A&M could take that next jump, it certainly feels like the conversation starts at the quarterback position.

With previous starter Zach Calzada having transferred to Auburn earlier this offseason, the competition for the Texas A&M starting job is wide open entering the spring, with three names squarely in the mix. Among those options however, it certainly feels like LSU transfer Max Johnson is the arguable favorite entering spring practice (60.3 CMP% for 2,815 yards and 27 TD in 2021).

As for the other two, original starter from last season Haynes King also returns after missing a majority of 2021 with an injury, while five-star freshman Conner Weigman could be the name to watch for coming to Texas A&M as one of the highest-rated quarterback recruits in Aggies history.

While the Texas A&M starting job will likely not be fully decided this spring, it seems like a leader in that competition will emerge at some point. Will it be Johnson or King, or will Weigman be a day one starter in College Station?
