Miami's Starting QB Tweets Message To Fans

Miami's Malik Rosier sent out a thank you to his supporters after being named starting quarterback.

The Hurricanes have themselves a starting quarterback.

Redshirt junior Malik Rosier has been named Miami's starting quarterback for the 2017 season, and earlier today he tweeted out a message to his fans thanking them for all the support.

Check it out:

"Focus, discipline and accuracy. He showed up focused every day on his job," Richt said of Rosier in an official release. "He was disciplined in his fundamentals, his footwork, his reads, his passing fundamentals. And he was hitting his target. He did a very good job.

"He did stand out above the rest," Richt added. "It wasn't an unbelievable amount, but it was apparent that he was having the best camp. Evan did extremely well. I felt like there was enough of a difference to feel comfortable that Malik is the guy. The young guys…they got to know what to do and own it for a while before they can really compete at a high level at that position."

Rosier played in three games last year, completing 2-of-4 passes for 32 yards. In 2015, he saw action in six games—one of which he started in, throwing for 272 yards and two touchdowns in a 30-27 win versus Duke.

The Hurricanes kick off their season on September 2 with a matchup versus Bethune-Cookman.
