Jordan Webb will start at QB

Kansas coach Turner Gill has been hinting at it for weeks now, and he made it official on Friday afternoon: KU redshirt sophomore Jordan Webb will be the Jayhawks’ starting quarterback.

"After evaluating our quarterback position with (offensive Coordinator) Chuck (Long), we decided at this time to announce that Jordan Webb will be our starter at that position," Gill said in a statement. "Jordan has shown great leadership and consistency all throughout fall camp. His improved quarterbacking skills put him in the position to lead our team."
