MI transfer Wilton Speight announced as UCLA's starting QB

Wilson Speight, who started 16 games at MI, will start for UCLA on Saturday against Cincinnati.

Wilton Speight jumped from MI to UCLA, going from Jim Harbaugh to Chip Kelly.

Kelly is also making his return to college football after coaching the Eagles and 49ers since 2013. Saying Speight is immobile would be putting it kindly, but he proved during his time at MI that he can be a pretty efficient passer.

Speight, the former MI starter, was tabbed Thursday to take the first snap against Cincinnati at the Rose Bowl. When looking at the offense that is known to have a dual-threat quarterback, Speight is not the guy for the job.

This, of course, means that true freshman Dorian Thompson-Robinson will have to bide his time and wait his turn while Kelly entrusts his offense to a more experienced hand.

Former government law minister Zahid Hamid was forced to resign from his post, leading to the TLP finally calling off the protest. His government has summoned the Dutch ambassador to lodge a formal protest, but has so far dismissed calls to expel the envoy.

Though both Modster and Thompson-Robinson could potentially run the ball in the way that some of Kelly's quarterbacks at OR could, Kelly has said many times that he won't force any specific offensive style onto his new roster.

"We haven't informed anybody, because we haven't made the decision", Kelly said on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old started for the Wolverines the past two seasons, recording 2,538 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2016.

He was limited to four games in 2017 after suffering a spinal injury. He started the Wolverines' first four games, but suffered a serious back injury against Purdue on September 23 and missed the rest of the season. Instead, he has 15 games of starting experience for MI in which he threw for 3,192 yards and 22 touchdowns.
