NSU coach: Potential QBs 'all starting even' in spring

NORFOLK, Virginia --  Chris Walley arrived from junior college laden with experience. Jake Basmagian had very little.

Norfolk State's newest junior college quarterback, Jason Stewart, has a resume somewhere in between and will be a potential option at the position heading into the Spartans' spring practice, according to head coach Pete Adrian.

Stewart, 6-foot-4 and 216 pounds, is at NSU for the second semester and is already working out with the team, while Basmagian and punter Dylan Shaddix did not return to school, Adrian said.

Adrian said he plans to have an open competition when spring practice begins.

"They're all starting even," Adrian said of the quarterbacks. "And it starts now when we're able to meet with them for an hour, an hour-and-a-half here and there."

Walley guided the Spartans to their first MEAC title as a senior in 2011, but the team slipped to 4-7 last season.
