Quarterback still a 3-way race at Virginia

Mike London and his Virginia coaching staff are facing a familiar problem during spring practice.

The Cavaliers are giving repetitions to three quarterbacks, and hoping one emerges as a clear winner in the fight to be the starter. London says David Watford, Greyson Lambert and Matt Johns all have made significant strides from last season, and the competition will go as long as it needs to go.

London says whoever emerges will have improved targets in the passing game.

He says the training staff finally recommended that Darius Jennings get contact lenses, and he doesn't think Jennings has dropped a pass all spring. He says adding some wide receiver routes for athletic tight end Jake McGee also has paid off, especially in red zone situations, by causing a mismatch.
