Auburn Malik Willis caps strong spring with A-Day performance

There might be "multiple" quarterback competitions at Auburn in the fall.

We know about the race for the starting job, believed to be down to Jarrett Stidham and Sean White.

Freshman Malik Willis may be gaining momentum in his push to be the back-up quarterback. Willis showed at A-Day that he's ready to be included in that conversation. When he worked with the first team offense in the second half, Willis completed eight of 12 passes for 111 yards.

"For a guy that should still be in high school, I think he's really doing some things that have really impressed coach Chip Lindsey," head coach Gus Malzahn said. "I thought he managed the offense. He took a sack or two (Saturday), but that's just from being young. Overall, he's had a solid spring."
