Schroeder is No. 1; Graves moves to receiver

August 6th, 2012

Sean Schroeder was named the Warriors' No. 1 quarterback today.

Schroeder met two of  coach Norm Chow's requirements: 1) Command of the pro-set offense, and 2) Command of the huddle. Schroeder also was the most productive of the quarterbacks in scrimmage-like drills.

Schroeder, who earned a bachelor's degree in three years at Duke, played in a similar offense with the Blue Devils. He is not on scholarship ... at the moment. He has two seasons of eligibility remaining.

David Graves, who will be the No. 3 quarterback, worked out as a receiver today.

It does not appear that cornerback Justin "JT" Turner will fulfill all of the transfer requirements in time for the start of UH's fall semester. As such, the Warriors no longer are counting on him to play this season.

The Warriors still are holding out hope that Ronald Fields will be cleared to play. Fields is in town while awaiting confirmation of his JC transcripts.

Even if Fields does not qualify, John Hardy-Tuliau will remain in the middle as a safety or nickelback. Hardy-Tuliau was a No. 1 cornerback in the spring but moved at the start of training camp with the addition of cornerback Tony Grimes. Mike Edwards and Grimes have been the No. 1 corners, with Ne‘Quan Phillips, Dee Maggitt, Kawika Ornellas and Marrell Jackson rotating with the second unit.
