The only red shirt Beau Reilly will wear will be the red jersey worn by UH quarterbacks during practices.
Coach Norm Chow said Reilly, a 22-year-old freshman who has yet to appear in a UH game, is not redshirting this season.
“We have six more games to go,” Chow said. “He knows that.”
If healthy, Ikaika Woolsey remains as the No. 1 quarterback. But Chow said he hopes to craft specific plays for Reilly. Reilly practiced as the No. 1 quarterback for three practices last week. Woolsey was the No. 1 quarterback in Friday’s practice, then made his sixth start of the season in Saturday’s game against San Diego State.
Eric Prater, also a 22-year-old freshman, is the No. 3 quarterback.
Although there was hope Jeremy Higgins would return this season, he is indeed out for the year because of a fractured left hand and injured wrist, according to Chow.
