Dwayne Haskins

“Quarterbacks, we all are the alpha males, and we all compete against each other at all the camps, and we all know about one another. Kyler coming out of high school was the best quarterback in the country. Tua was like a God. And to be able to be in the same conversation with them makes me feel like I put the work in to be considered the best quarterback in the country. I have much respect for those guys.”

Kyler Murray

“For me, I’m just blessed to be a part of it. I’m not going into it thinking it’s mine or I’m going to win it or anything like that. I’m just going into it clear eyes, open minded, just have fun. If I do win, I think this past weekend had something to do with it. I really don’t pay attention much to that stuff. For me, all I can do is go out there and play and if people vote for me they vote for me, and if they don’t they don’t.”
