Syracuse wraps up spring practice as junior Terrel Hunt separates himself a little bit at QB

Syracuse finished spring ball Saturday, and junior Terrel Hunt continued his bid to win the starting quarterback job.

Hunt was 19 of 29 for 209 yards and two scores in the spring game, hitting Jarrod West in stride for a 49-yard TD, and generally was the most effective, ahead of fifth-year senior Charley Loeb (3 of 8 for 9 yards) and senior John Kinder (8 of 12 for 46 yards and one touchdown).

While Hunt is the front-runner headed to summer camp, he promises to have some stiff competition. Drew Allen, a three-year backup at Oklahoma who was given the green light by the school earlier this year to seek another opportunity for his final year of college eligibility, is expected to enroll at Syracuse as a graduate student and vie for the starting job and quarterbacks Austin Wilson of Pennsylvania and Mitch Kimble of Illinois are among the new recruits who will be in camp in August.
