  Whittingham got out in front of the elephant in the room, Bentley, long perceived as the eventual starter for the Nov. 7 opener, being voted a captain. "The first thing I'll say is don't read anything into Jake Bentley being a captain as far as winning the job," Whittingham said. "That's just what his peers think of him. Don't get me wrong, that's a positive thing, but that does not factor into our decision as far as who's going to be the guy." In Whittingham's defense, a quarterback being named a captain does not always indicate who the starter will be. Utah's recent history at the position is proof.

In 2016, Troy Williams was a captain. He started all 13 games at quarterback for Utah, throwing for 2,757 yards and 15 touchdowns as part of a 9-4 season. Late in training camp ahead of the 2017 season, Williams was again voted as a captain. Days later, sophomore Tyler Huntley was named the starting quarterback. Huntley went on to win 23 games as a starter, was named All-Pac-12 first team as a senior in 2019, and is currently on the Baltimore Ravens practice squad. Even if Bentley's captaincy is not a sure sign of who the starting quarterback will be, it is a clear sign of how much progress he has made in a short time. - Salt Lake Tribune

  After seeing seven players drafted last spring and several other players sign NFL deals, the Utes won't have nearly as many pro prospects from this year's team. The Utes only have 16 seniors on their current roster and only about a half dozen are likely starters when the Utes play again. Among the seniors is South Carolina transfer quarterback Jake Bentley, who had three good seasons for the Gamecocks and possibly wouldn't want to wait until next year to play, if he felt he had a chance to play in the NFL.

Other top seniors are defensive back Vonte Davis, long-snapper Keegan Markgraf, receivers Samson Nacua and Tyrone Young-Smith, offensive linemen Orlando Umana and Bam Olaseni and defensive linemen Viane Moala, Mufi Hill-Hunt, Hauati Pututau, Pita Tonga and Maxs Tupai. In the depth chart released before spring practice, only Davis, Umana, Moala, Hill-Hunt, Pututau and Markgraf were listed as starters with Bentley as a possible starter. When asked about the possibility of a pro day for his seniors this fall or next spring, Whittingham said, "We want to give our seniors every advantage possible. Any exposure we can give them, we'll certainly try to do." - Deseret News

  In a recent interview with a newspaper in Columbia, South Carolina, quarterback Jake Bentley reemphasized his decision to play his final college season at Utah. The graduate transfer played and started in 33 games for South Carolina before making the move. He was limited to one game last season because of a foot injury. "I just felt like I needed a new start," Bentley told The State. "I love (Will) Muschamp and I'm so thankful for all that he's done for me and my family. But I think for me it was just something that I needed to do."

Bentley made his decision in December and enrolled at Utah shortly thereafter. He's competing with Texas transfer Cam Rising and veteran Drew Lisk for the starting job vacated by the graduation of Tyler Huntley. "Going into it, I told my dad and all of the other coaches that were talking to me that I wanted a situation where I could grow as a person and a football player. Those were the two big things I was looking for. Utah really is a special place." - Deseret News

  Utah quarterback Jake Bentley wrote a post that shares his thoughts on race in America. The former South Carolina quarterback posted this message on Twitter as protests continued over the death of George Floyd. Here's what Bentley shared: "I once had the opportunity to speak with Tim Tebow and I asked him what he told his team when down in the 4th quarter. "'Why not us? Why can't we be the guys that shock the world?' was his response. "Over the past couple of days I've thought about this a lot. Not in terms of football but about life. "Why can't we be the generation that puts an end to racism? Why can't we shock the world and kneel with a fellow black teammate? Your views on the kneeling might be completely different than theirs. But that's not the point, the point is that you recognize the pain and suffering that the black community is in and have been for generations because of racial inequality. While you might not have experienced the same pain, you recognize the need for change in America," he wrote. Bentley is a senior graduate transfer from South Carolina. He was sidelined for all but one game last year with an injury. In his career with the Gamecocks, he threw for 7,527 yards, 55 touchdowns and 32 interceptions. - Deseret News

  A 33-game starter across parts of four seasons at the University of South Carolina, Bentley committed to the Utes on Dec. 9, then arrived in Salt Lake City on Jan. 3, three days before the start of the spring semester. Bentley went through the offseason program, then opened a three-way quarterback competition with redshirt sophomore Cam Rising and redshirt junior Drew Lisk. Utah's three spring practices gave way to a week off for spring break. The Utes never returned after the COVID-19 pandemic struck, indefinitely postponing all in-person team-related activities. At the end of the day, I think we all would've shown what we can do on the football field," Bentley said Tuesday on a conference call with beat reporters from his family's home in Lexington, S.C. "Spring practice would've allowed us to do that. It would have been clear who it was, but I think it goes back to my point that each day is an opportunity to compete.

"It would've definitely been a fun situation to have those scrimmages and those game-like reps, but the situation we're in will take us to fall camp, whenever that is, so I guess it'll shake out then. That's why this time is so important, to not take any steps back and to keep getting better." Bentley suffered a season-ending Lisfranc injury to his right foot on the final play of the 2019 season-opener. He was a full participant once spring ball started at Utah, but still had a plate in the injured foot. Once Bentley was home in South Carolina and it was clear spring practice would not be resuming for the foreseeable future, Utes head football athletic trainer Joe McBeth advised Bentley to have the plate removed. - Salt Lake Tribune

  Last Monday, South Carolina quarterback Jake Bentley officially announced he would enter the transfer portal and play his 2020 season elsewhere. Today, he announced where he'll be taking his talents for next year. The senior signal-caller posted on social media that he will be transferring to the University of Utah for his final season of college eligibility. As a grad transfer, he'll be able to play immediately with no waiting period. Utah was ranked as high as No. 5 this past season before falling to Oregon in the Pac-12 Championship Game this past weekend. Bentley brings plenty of experience to the Utes offense. He leaves South Carolina with the fourth-most passing yards in program history (7527), the third-most passing touchdowns (55), and the second-highest completion percentage (62%). - ABC News Columbia

  South Carolina football was the place Jake Bentley grew from a freshman forced to play a year too early into a prolific SEC passer. Now he's moving on to finish that career as a graduate transfer, meaning he'll be eligible to play right away at whatever college he chooses. Bentley announced the news Monday, two days after the Gamecocks' 2019 season wrapped up. Said Bentley in a social media post: "The past 3 1/2 years have been incredible. I have met lifelong friends and made memories that I will never forget. However at this time, I believe that it is in my best interest to graduate on December 16th and transfer to play my final year of eligibility." Bentley only played in one game in 2019, having his season end in a Lisfranc foot injury. That sent what projected to be a final chapter of his career off the rails, putting four-star freshman Ryan Hilinski into the driver's seat of South Carolina's offense. - The State

  South Carolina quarterback Jake Bentley will have season-ending surgery on his fractured left foot. Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp announced Bentley's decision Sunday. Bentley suffered a Lisfranc fracture in the foot on the final play of a 24-20 loss to North Carolina on Aug. 31 and was in a walking boot and using a scooter to get around on the sideline as South Carolina beat Charleston Southern 72-10 on Saturday. Muschamp said nothing has been determined about the senior's future other than he'll have surgery this week. Bentley thought about going pro last year before returning to the Gamecocks. He has not redshirted so he could come back to South Carolina or leave for a final season as a graduate transfer. - AP College Football
