ANN ARBOR -- One of the biggest questions heading into the 2015 season is the quarterback.

With no clear starter and two incoming freshman looking to compete for snaps, their position coach, head coach Jim Harbaugh, will have his work cut out for him.

Luckily for the young quarterbacks, Harbaugh has been known as a quarterback guru and all quarterbacks that are, or will be, on the Michigan roster will get their chance to see his tutelage firsthand.

All that's left is to determine who has been sticking out the most.

"We have five quarterbacks that are here right now, they're all trained, they're all lifting and they're all conditioning themselves readying for spring ball, this will be a lot of fun." Harbaugh said during his National Signing Day press conferences on Wednesday. "We will throw the balls out there and the guys will compete. There'll be scrimmages, there'll be 7-on-7's, team drills and 11-on-11 football will be the most important. Who moves the team the best, who avoids turnovers, who takes care of the football and who can rally his team.

"All of that will be played out on the football field, the meritocracy at its best."

A meritocracy means someone being selected to a position of power by his or her ability. If that's the case, may the best man for the job win.
