Quarterback Kyle Gallup is facing a recovery period of between six and eight weeks after undergoing successful surgery to repair an injured meniscus in his right knee this past Wednesday.
Head coach Nick Rolovich acknowledged that Gallup probably will be moved to tight end/H-back when he rejoins the team. The switch would be prompted because 1) the Warriors are deep with quarterbacks, and 2) Gallup is a physical player whose skills are suited as a blocker.
As of now, the top-tier QBs are Dru Brown, Cole McDonald, Cole Brownholtz and Larry Tuileta. They have taken all the reps in 7-on-7 and team drills.
The other quarterbacks are Hunter Hughes, who is the lone senior, and freshman walk-ons Justin Uahinui and Karson Greeley.
Chevan Cordeiro (Saint Louis School) and Jeremy Moussa (Roosevelt High in Corona, Calif.) have pledged to join the Warriors in 2018.
