The Hurricanes concluded their second scrimmage of the fall Monday and according to the school's sports information staff receiver Tommy Streeter was a star again along with both of the quarterbacks -- Jacory Harris and Stephen Morris -- competing for the starting job.
Streeter, who had three TD catches in the team's first scrimmage, two more on Monday and led all players with seven catches for 148 yards. He also supposedly came within inches of a third TD catch at the end of the scrimmage when he hauled in a 50-yard "Hail Mary" pass from Jacory Harris, but dragged down at the 1-yard line. The white team won 34-31 over the Orange.
Harris, leading the Orange team and sophomore Stephen Morris of the White squad were a combined 39-of-57 passing for 547 yards with six touchdowns and no turnovers.
The scrimmage was divided up into four 10-minute quarters with the offenses starting drives in their own end. There were no punt or kick-off situations. It also was not open to the media.
UM coach Al Golden said he and his assistants would have a lot of decisions to make over the next 48 hours -- not just at quarterback. He said Saturday there's a chance the depth chart would be out at Tuesday. But it's more likely that Wednesday will be the day.
