UNLV Football Fall Camp: Nick Sherry Could Be Named Starting Quarterback Over Caleb Herring

UNLV Rebels head coach Bobby Hauk has decided to make most positions up for grabs, including the quarterback spot. Caleb Herring has started 19 games in his UNLV career with very little success and in 2011 he averaged only 91.3 yards per game, so it makes sense to look for a change.

The change could come in form in redshirt freshman Nick Sherry who out of high school was rated as a three-star player with offers from Arizona, San Diego State, Idaho, Washington State and others.

So far during camp, Sherry has performed well and even better than Herring. On Tuesday, Sherry did not perform his best, but he rebounded after a few poor throws to pick himself back up and finished the day strong. Hauck recognized that after Tuesday's practice:

"He's shown a nice knack for when he doesn't get off to a good start of being able to come back and compete and play well," Hauck said.

Even though no starter has been officially named for the season opener against Minnesota, Sherry has the edge since he has spent more time with the first team than Herring. However, even with more reps, Sherry is not taking anything for granted:

"I'm out here competing with all our quarterbacks," Sherry said. "We're coming out here every day working hard, and we let coaches worry about that stuff."

Hauck has said there is no timetable to make a decision on to name the starter, but it would make sense to name one a few days before camp ends so that they can prepare for the opener.
