Most people would agree that as a whole, Alabama has the best assortment of quarterbacks in college football. However, one college quarterback couldn't disagree more.
Tommy Stevens, a quarterback for Penn State, disputes the claim that the Crimson Tide hold the "best QB room in the country" as the Crimson Tide Twitter states.
Stevens was a 3-star quarterback out of high school that ranked as the seventh best player in the state of Indiana in the class of 2015, according to ESPN.
Stevens has backed up Trace McSorely for the past two years and he's showed promise in the time he's gotten. In eight appearances last season, Stevens completed more than half his passes for 158 yards and three touchdowns. He had considered a transfer from the Nittany Lions but ultimately decided to stay in Happy Valley.

Once a 6-3, 186-pound QB recruit, Stevens is now looking for a double-digit TD total, however he can. https://t.co/T16rrw1E6q
One could argue that Penn State's starter is better than either Hurts or Tua, but to say they have a better overall unit may be pushing it. Stevens has done well and worked very hard, but he hasn't proven as much as either of Alabama's quarterbacks have, especially not on the stage that Tua showed his skills on.
Stevens can talk smack all he wants, but f he wants to prove his point, he'll have to keep putting his nose to the grind stone and keep on working. Fortunately hell have more of an opportunity thanks to Penn State's new offensive scheme.
