South Carolina’s quarterback situation just got much more puzzling.
Redshirt senior quarterback Perry Orth sustained a broken collarbone during Saturday’s spring scrimmage, according to a report from GamecockCentral.com’s Chris Clark. He is scheduled to undergo surgery and is expected to recover by June, according to Clark.
Orth is one of a handful of quarterbacks battling for South Carolina’s starting job. Orth is essentially the incumbent after going 1-7 as a starter last season. He threw for 1,929 yards, 12 touchdowns and nine interceptions a year ago.
This makes South Carolina’s wide open quarterback competition even more interesting to watch. Orth’s injury opens the door for sophomore Lorenzo Nunez, redshirt junior Connor Mitch and redshirt sophomore Michael Scarnecchia to earn more reps and potentially take control of the starting reins
