QB Humphrey joins race for Griz starter
Still no decisive starter under center for Montana this fall, but the addition of former Boise State QB Cam Humphrey now gives the Griz two relatively veteran options.
Cam Humphrey joins fellow transfer Dalton Snead and redshirt freshman Tanner Wilson in a three-way race for starting quarterback this fall – each hungry for the job after the departure of incumbent sophomore Gresch Jensen.
Humphrey, a 6-foot-2, 192-pound transfer from Saddleback Community College in Mission Viejo, Calif., started his college career as a walk-on for the Broncos. The Issaquah, Wash., native’s primary competition is Sneed, who started five games as a redshirt at UNLV before transferring to a full-time starting job at Fort Scott Community College in Kansas last season.
Along with Wilson, the three look to replace Jensen, who declared his intention to transfer just a week after spring ball ended.
“I know Dalton feels the same way about competition,” Humphrey said. “It’s going to be a healthy competition and in turn, it will make the team better. That’s the ultimate goal: to make the team as good as we can be. Whoever is leading the front, that’s in the coaches’ hands so we are just going to compete in the end and see what happens.”
Humphrey will officially join the Grizzlies later this month; Montana’s season kicks off Saturday, Sept. 1, at home versus Northern Iowa.
