So much for avoiding a quarterback controversy. Despite reports that Jacory Harris is healthy and cleared to play, a source close to the Hurricanes tells NBCMiami that freshman QB Stephen Morris will start against the USF Bulls this Saturday. Are the Harris days for the Hurricanes over?
Morris was taking first-team snaps at practice Tuesday afternoon with a healthy Harris on the field.
The source, who did not want to be named because the coach had not commented on the issue, said Harris was told Monday night he would be the back up until further notice.

The USF game shouldn't be taking lightly, but Harris had no problems facing the Bulls last year in a 31-10 victory.
This also make the quarterback race going into next year quite interesting. Harris will be a senior still hoping for a shot at the NFL, Morris will be a true sophomore, and Highsmith, a promising quarterback in his own right, will be a junior.
