2014 Player Analysis: Malik Rosier

2014 Player Analysis: Malik Rosier

Malik Rosier was a lightly recruited quarterback from the state of Alabama that offensive coordinator James Coley liked a lot from day one.

As a recruit: Malik Rosier was offered a scholarship by Miami when James Coley watched him during spring football at Faith Academy High in Mobile, Ala. He came to Miami's camp in June and that's when the coaches accepted his commitment. He finished his senior season with 1,852 yards and 16 touchdowns. He also added 1,301 yards and 17 scores on the ground. Rosier did not have any other BCS scholarship offers and his only official visit was to Miami.

What to expect: At 6-foot-1 and 205 pounds, Rosier brings a tremendous amount of athleticism to the position. He's one of the most athletic quarterbacks Miami has signed in several years. He's a legitimate dual-threat kid who will be one of five scholarship quarterbacks on the roster this fall. While Ryan Williams, Kevin Olsen, and Jake Heaps compete for the starting job, it's likely that Brad Kaaya and Rosier will take redshirts in 2014. Unless the Canes have a rash of injuries at the position, it's hard to see Rosier seeing the field at all this fall. If he does, it will likely be in certain situations where his running ability can create some problems for opposing defenses.
