The Texas A&M football team had a quarterback competition going on for the entirety of the 2021 offseason. That competition would result in Haynes King being announced as the starter just before the season.

Unfortunately, he’d drop with a leg injury that left him out of the entire 2022 campaign — Zach Calzada would step in and do a serviceable job under center. Now, A&M’s quarterback situation is even more of a mystery than it was in the last offseason.

Jimbo Fisher has brought in two extremely talented guys to compete with King. The first was Conner Weigman, a five-star quarterback in the 2022 class — he’ll be in the running for the starting spot immediately. The other is LSU transfer Max Johnson, who was one of the more underrated passers in the country in 2021.

Last year, the “quarterback competition” didn’t ever seem like much of a competition. Based on what we were hearing out of College Station, it seemed extremely obvious that Haynes King was going to be the starter all along.

This season, it seems like a true three-man competition. Unlike last year, you’ve got two experienced quarterbacks ready to take the job — the inexperienced player will be a complementary option.

Today, I’m going to be ranking each of these quarterbacks by how likely they are to start. Some might say that I’ll be splitting hairs for about 20 minutes and publishing it as an article.
