Auburn’s 2023 Position Battles: Quarterback

Who will Auburn start at quarterback in 2023?

With the reboot and rebuild of the Auburn football roster complete, Coach Hugh Freeze & Co. have acquired a lot of new faces and talent to compliment the quarterback room for this upcoming season. With new talent gracing the wide receiver room, the offensive line room, and the running back room, the Tigers' quarterbacks look to be spoiled for choice in how to command this Auburn offense down the field.

Offensive coordinator Philip Montgomery likes to put up a balanced attack on the offensive front, wearing down the defensive line with hard-nosed, explode-the-gap running to effectively lull the secondary into tighter coverage to then hit them over the top with intermediate to deep passing threats. 

With the additions of Dillon Wade, Connor Lew, Izavion Miller, and Jaden Muskrat to beef up the offensive line, much more than fans have seen in recent years, the Tigers look to protect their man under center much more effectively this upcoming season. So with this new talent and offensive scheme in the works, the question before us today is who in the Auburn quarterback room will be the most effective and efficient at running this new type of offensive attack for the Auburn Tigers?

Auburn’s quarterback play will need to be vastly improved from last year’s performance if the Tiger’s wish to continue with the steam they have built off a successful recruiting offseason. Freeze and his staff seem to be extremely prepared and extremely excited to begin the upcoming season to show off just how much improvement they have been capable of accomplishing in such a short period of time.
