Chesson on Starting QB: 'I don't know'

Who will be Michigan's starting quarterback on Saturday? Well, if Jehu Chesson knows - he's not saying.

With just a few days till Michigan squares off against Hawaii, there still remains a burning question before U-M’s opening kickoff at noon on Saturday: Who will be U-M’s starting quarterback in 2016?

Well, don’t expect fifth-year senior wide receiver Jehu Chesson to tell you anytime soon, as he rebuffed any knowledge of U-M’s future signal caller to a group of reporters at Schembechler Hall on Tuesday.

“I don’t know” Chesson said. “I don’t know that question.”

After some laughs with the media, Chesson still maintained his stance on Michigan’s quarterback situation.

“I don’t know,” he said. “When we call out first play on Saturday at (noon against Hawaii), I’ll find out then.”

Chesson never wavered on his QB stance, even when he was told that his coach, Jim Harbaugh, had reported that the team knew who the starter would be against Hawaii.

“Did he tell the team? I must not of been in that meeting. I must have been rehabbing,” he said, still maintaining; “I don’t know.”

One thing is for sure; U-M’s starting quarterback will either be Wilton Speight, John O’Korn, Shane Morris or Alex Malzone.

No matter who the quarterback will be, Chesson says all of U-M’s receivers have been working hard to gain chemistry with all four of Michigan’s QB’s throughout fall camp.

“I think the guys have working hard regardless of the quarterback will be. I’ve built a relationship with all the quarterbacks now,” Chesson said.

No. 7 Michigan opens its season with Hawaii this Saturday at noon ET.
