Memphis went through a run of great college football quarterbacks, and they’re waiting for Brady White to become the next one. Under new leadership, White must prove that last year wasn’t a fluke, and continue his progress towards being a dangerous threat in the AAC.
His performances in big games continue to be a subject of discussion, but it’s more than evident that he’s capable of competing at the highest level. For him, it becomes all about consistency and slowing the big games down. White’s an accurate passer with great ball placement, touch, and anticipation, and that combined with the plethora of playmakers surrounding him makes Memphis a dangerous offense once again. At times, all the Tigers need him to do is distribute the football to his skill players. Whether that’s medium routes or quick screens, he’s shown that he can do what’s asked of him. He knows what he can and can’t do, and normally does his best to utilize his skills without trying to do too much.
If Memphis wants to retain its title, White needs to become a consistent threat throwing the football. He doesn’t have great arm strength, so he needs to stick with what he knows. At times, especially in big games, his decision making suffers and turnovers become an issue. His ability to stay calm in the pocket and know when the pressure’s getting to him becomes vital in those moments.
Brady White is a more than capable passer, and he’s shown that he can run the ball if absolutely necessary, but he needs to round out his game more. Consistency remains his biggest concern, but he has the tools to get better. We already saw great improvement from him last year, and now he gets on more year to do it again. If he takes strides in the right direction, a future in the NFL could be in store.
