  UCF reserve quarterback Parker Navarro has entered his name in the NCAA transfer portal, according to multiple reports. Navarro was on the outside looking in as it came to UCF's quarterback competition between sophomore Mikey Keene, senior John Rhys Plumlee and true freshman Thomas Castellanos. The redshirt sophomore from Arizona suffered a shoulder injury in the team's second spring scrimmage, which limited him for the remainder of camp. Navarro was photographed Saturday after the spring game with his left arm in a sling. After taking a redshirt his first year at UCF, Navarro appeared in five games at quarterback and on special teams last season. He ran the ball seven times for 54 yards. Navarro finished tied for third on the team with three rushing touchdowns, one each in the final three games of the regular season. A member of UCF's 2020 signing class, Navarro was a three-star prospect coming out of Desert Vista in Phoenix, Arizona. He threw for 2,749 yards and 29 touchdowns with six interceptions as a senior quarterback in 2019. He added 959 rushing yards and 11 rushing touchdowns his senior season. - Orlando Sentinel

  With Armani Rogers gone, the dual-quarterback system that the Bobcats clung to over the past two seasons has been thrown out the window. However, that might not be a detriment. Kurtis Rourke, who will likely become Ohio's lone starting quarterback next season, can benefit from the extra time on the field. He's already been allotted more snaps during spring practices. Ohio's other quarterbacks, like C.J. Harris and Callum Wither, each took their fair share of snaps Saturday, but Rourke was on the field for the majority of practice. His position as next year's starter is nearly set in stone. Albin believes Rourke has been due for more responsibility and was impressed with his performance throughout spring ball. "He had a really good spring, as he should, because he's at the next step," Albin said. "He got a lot of experience. He did it all through spring ball, and he finished today. I thought he had a good day." - The Post
