Mizzowans first choice to start at quarterback in 2017 was a true freshman who played in five games at the position, and is now the backup.
The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder, who will be a true sophomore, is expected to get an even bigger payday.
He played for three different teams during his career, including one year at Texas A&M.
While he was able to get a scholarship offer from the Aggies in 2016, the Mizzos turned down the offer and signed their top pick in 2019, linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin.
Reeves-Junkins has also been a standout at the University of Oklahoma.
Mizzs top pick, running back Dalvin Cook, also played three seasons for Mizz.
He had six touchdowns and six total tackles for loss last season.
He was a four-star recruit, but he fell to the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
He could be a major piece in the offense Mizzo will have in 2017.
The Mizzones top five offensive linemen were All-Americans at Mizzoo.
That was also the case for running back Jonathan Allen.
The Missouri native has been a Heisman candidate and is considered one of the best running backs in the country.
He is projected as a top-five NFL draft pick.
The offensive line is also a major concern for the Mennonite team.
They lost four starters to graduation, including All-American guard D.J. Jackson, who was a two-time first-team All-SEC pick.
Jackson is expected as a true junior in 2018.
Quarterback Josh Rosen has also taken steps forward this year.
He completed 66.5 percent of his passes for 2,000 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, which ranked as the second-best single-season mark in school history.
The former Wisconsin Badger completed 69.7 percent of passes for 1,400 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2015.
Rosen is a big-time athlete and has the ability to be an elite quarterback.
Rosen had a breakout season in 2016 with 8 touchdowns and four interceptions, and he could become a top NFL draft choice.
Rosen has an impressive arm, but his mechanics are still a work in progress.
Rosen was a third-team all-Big 12 pick in 2016 and he has also played for the Aggie staff in the past.
