Alabama has a leader at QB going into fall camp

Good thing the season doesn't start today then!

The battle for quarterback in Tuscaloosa has been heating up recently and it seems there's a leader in the doghouse. Coach Nick Saban says the battle is going into the fall, but he does have a starter for now if the season were to start right this moment.

Bateman made it into the final pairing last year and even got a start in one of the six games he played in last season as a sophomore. The soon-to-be junior should have an advantage in camp as he's been in the system for a couple years and has tasted real game action.

Blake Barnett and David Cornwell are also expected to compete for the job at Alabama. Barnett is a former five-star recruit and Cornwell had some good momentum heading into fall last year before being cut out of the last pairing.
