True freshman about to take Heaps’ job

As a high school player at Bishop Miege High School in Kansas, Montell Cozart took all of a week to show he could take over as a freshman quarterback. If the story sounds familiar, that’s because it’s happening again. Cozart, a true freshman quarterback at Kansas, is engaged in another competition with an older teammate, junior quarterback Jake Heaps. And once again, Cozart has begun to make believers out of a coaching staff, one looking for help on a struggling offense. When Kansas, 2-5 and 0-4 in the Big 12, travels to Texas on Saturday, Heaps and Cozart will split the snaps for the second straight week. It might be a 50-50 proposition — unless one quarterback steps up — and Cozart will get another chance to prove he’s the future.
