Applewhite’s main issue right now is figuring out this year’s quarterback. He’s got three decent options in Kyle Postma, who spent the past two seasons backing up Greg Ward Jr.; Kyle Allen, who helped to bring about the great Herman-610 Radio feud; and D’Eriq King, who had some explosive plays as a kick returner last season. Postma and King were injured during spring practice, so it’s only now that Applewhite and his coaches get a chance to get all three on even footing.
Applewhite says he wants the running game to come from his running backs and not be centered on his quarterback. He also says his goal is to get a scheme that fits his team and makes the best use of his players instead of forcing them into a scheme. We’ll see if he succeeds when UH faces UT-San Antonio to start the season.
