While Mike London may or may not be on the verge of naming a starting quarterback, whoever is under center for the Cavaliers will have plenty of options to throw to. With a number of experienced returners, the wide receiver position is one of the Cavaliers deepest.
The 'Hoos bring back seven wide receivers that recorded a catch last year, and five of those players are upperclassmen. The depth at the position has created a positive competition during practice.
"We come out everyday, you know, we're competing," says junior receiver Darius Jennings who led the team in receiving yards last season. "We're always laughing and joking cause you know we're all friends and everything, but at the same time we're out here to get work done and just help the offense.
"I think it's helped our group to mature and just get better overall."
The Cavaliers also have experience at tight end, highlighted by junior Jake McGee. With so many options in the passing game, London says it's forced his receivers to step up.
"We always talk about, competition brings out the best in everyone, he said. "It's important for those guys that want to go in the game, they eliminate alignment errors, they eliminate balls that go through their hand when they should catch the ball."
