Wilson heads talented group of Arkansas QBs

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Arkansas has a welcome problem at the quarterback position this spring.

The Razorbacks, who finished 11-2 last season and won the Cotton Bowl over Kansas State, have three talented quarterbacks -- Tyler Wilson, Brandon Mitchell and Brandon Allen.

Wilson is the clearly defined starter after earning first-team All-Southeastern Conference honors last season.

What's less clear is Mitchell's role in what has become an abundance of talent at the quarterback position for Arkansas. Freshman Brandon Allen redshirted last season for the Razorbacks, but he passed Mitchell on the team's depth chart before spring practice.

The move was largely due to Mitchell's time with the Arkansas basketball team since the beginning of the year, but it highlighted the team's depth at quarterback.

It's a problem the coaching staff welcomes.
