At this time last year, Brad Kaaya was preparing for his senior season at quarterback for West Hills Chaminade. Now, he has been named the starting quarterback as a freshman at Miami.
Coach Al Golden made the announcement Sunday, with Kaaya beating out Kansas transfer Jake Heaps, who was once ranked the No. 1 high school quarterback prospect in the nation.
“As I told him, he’s our quarterback,” Golden told reporters Sunday afternoon after practice, a few hours after informing Kaaya and Heaps of the decision. “He’s not a freshman quarterback. He’s the University of Miami quarterback.”
