Sefo Liufau, Anu Solomon, Mike Bercovici: Ranking returning Pac-12 quarterbacks #6 to #4

Which quarterback is the closest to being an elite college signal-caller?

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

6. Sefo Liufau, Colorado Buffaloes

Ralphie Report

Jack Follman: Sefo Liufau - I was surprised that Mike MacIntyre did some tinkering at the quarterback position towards the end of the season because I liked what Liufau was doing. He isn't going to be a superstar, but he could be the guy who has the skills to will Colorado back to a bowl.

Bill Stenlund: The only bright spot on a terrible Colorado team, Liufau passed for 266 ypg. Put this kid on a good team and he'd burn the barn down.

Avinash Kunnath: Liufau showed some nice signs. He made Colorado competitive again. With Nelson Spruce and not much else, the Buffs put a bunch of scares into a few Pac-12 teams thanks to Liufau going out there and throwing darts. Colorado could be pretty good in two years if Liufau is standing back there.

5. Anu Solomon, Arizona Wildcats

Arizona Desert Swarm

Avinash Kunnath: Solomon was up and down all season. His performance was pretty much based on how good the Arizona run attack was performing, because Solomon could throw up some duds here and there when he was forced to win football games. If Solomon figures out what to do in his second year on the job, the Wildcats offense could be extremely potent. Jury's still out on him.

Jack Follman: Regardless of how good or bad he is, his stats will be impressive in Arizona's offense with the system and talent at running back and receiver around him. People seem to be trending down on him, but I think people need to remember that he was a freshman in 2014 and should improve quite a bit in the next couple of years.

Bill Stenlund: I know I'm going to shake things up, but I've never been a follower. Freshman year he put up 4,000 yards of offense and 28 TD's. The maturity he has shown is impressive. And did I mention, he's a winner - 10 wins his first year starting.

4. Mike Bercovici, Arizona St. Sun Devils

House of Sparky

Avinash Kunnath: I really liked what I saw out of Bercovici in the few games we got him. He makes a few mistakes a game, but his arm is better than Taylor Kelly, and he will burn some teams next season if he's given a gamebreaking wide receiver to work with. He isn't quite the scrambler that Kelly is, but he has proven he can throw one up and make a big play.

Jack Follman: Bercovici was impressive in the spots where we got to see him play. I only expect him to pick up where he left off and excel further with more snaps.

Bill Stenlund: A lot of others are high on him but I'm not sure. He's had limited playing time and some big games, but he's only averaging about 260 ypg on an explosive ASU team. On top of that he's only completing 62% of his passes and tosses a pick for every 3 TD's. We need to see more.
