USF TE Evan Landi taking snaps as backup QB

Al Messerschmidt

Tight end Evan Landi, a former high school quarterback, is starting to take reps at quarterback in practice for the Bulls, and will be the new backup to Matt Floyd.

In the wake of injures to quarterbacks B.J. Daniels and Bobby Eveld, the USF Bulls are starting to give backup tight end Evan Landi reps at quarterback. The Bulls have only one healthy scholarship quarterback, Matt Floyd, remaining on their roster. Landi has played wide receiver and tight end for USF, but came to Tampa as a quarterback, so he has experience playing the position.

Landi himself is recovering from an ankle injury, but it seems like he'll be healthy enough to play if he needs to on Friday when the Bulls head up to Cincinnati to take on the Bearcats.

Eveld suffered a third degree shoulder separation on Saturday in the Bulls' loss to Miami. His appearance in the game also burned his redshirt, which cannot be reinstated because he appeared in a game during the second half of the season. The separation occurred in his non-throwing shoulder, and he should be on track to play again in spring practice.
