Possible playing time in 2013: With the injury to Bo Wallace keeping him out until the summer, quarterbacks Barry Brunetti and Mikhail Miller are getting plenty of repetitions. Brunetti could very well be playing a different position when he suits up for his senior season which would leave the backup roles to Miller, Kincade and fellow freshmen Ryan Buchanan. The latter two were more recruited than Miller was, but he has some experience in the system which the other two do not. If Kincade can get to camp this summer and outperform Brunetti, Miller and Buchanan then he will have an opportunity for the second-string which promises occasional reps throughout the season. Wallace, barring setbacks, is firmly entrenched as the starter in 2013.

Wrap-up: A member of the prestigious Elite 11 quarterback camp, Kincade was highly regarded early on in his career. His release is quick, even on the run and he is accurate in short-mid range passes. The arm strength is not among the best in this class, but his accuracy in the intermediate range makes him ideal for the spread offense. Quick and elusive on his feet, he is reminiscent of the Oregon quarterbacks of the last half-decade. Buchanan is the ideal quarterback frame, but Kincade may very well be the prototype for the spread offense.
