Junior Michael Rocco, who started all 13 games in Virginia’s 8-5 season in 2012, was identified as the Cavaliers’ starting quarterback when coach Mike London released an updated depth chart Monday.
He was followed by sophomores Phillip Sims and David Watford.
Perhaps the most revealing information pertained to Watford, who played in 10 games as the 2011 back-up.
“I have the right to reserve whether we use David or not through the year,” London said, “but my plans are to redshirt him.
“The conversation was, ‘Would you want to play another position?’ He said, “I will, coach, if you want me to. Whatever the team needs.’
“I asked him what he wanted to do. He said, ‘I’d like to be a quarterback.’ ”
