Countdown clock: Auburn QBs open fall camp in seven days

AUBURN, Ala. -- Coach Gus Malzahn starts Auburn's preseason practice one week from today, and, in what shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, he's going to do it in offensive overdrive.

He has to because he has to find a starting quarterback from an unusually large pool of four candidates, and, after awhile, there just won't be enough snaps to go around unless he makes some fairly quick evaluations.

"We'll have an accelerated pace as far as our camp reps. We'll narrow it down," he says.

He won't fool around. He says he'll put his quarterbacks in real-world positions early both in practice and in a scrimmage scheduled just days into fall camp.

The candidates should be familiar by now: Returnees Kiehl Frazier and Jonathan Wallace, and newcomers Nick Marshall and Jeremy Johnson. Malzahn has not indicated, not even hinted, who stands above the others.
