Nick Saban Discusses The Alabama QB Competition, If There's A Favorite

A couple weeks into the spring, Alabama's quarterback competition remains unwon and un-narrowed down. 

The Crimson Tide, who went 12-2 last season, falling to Ohio State in the College Football Playoff, need to replace Blake Sims under center. There are five players competing for the starting spot. Senior Jake Coker, redshirt junior Alec Morris, redshirt sophomore Cooper Bateman, redshirt freshman David Cornwell and early-enrollee Blake Barnett are all contenders for the job, according to Nick Saban. 

Saban discussed the competition following practice Saturday.
