07:32 AM ET 11.01 | As a high school player at Bishop Miege High School in Kansas, Montell Cozart took all of a week to show he could take over as a freshman quarterback. If the story sounds familiar, that's because it's happening again. Cozart, a true freshman quarterback at Kansas, is engaged in another competition with an older teammate, junior quarterback Jake Heaps. And once again, Cozart has begun to make believers out of a coaching staff, one looking for help on a struggling offense. When Kansas, 2-5 and 0-4 in the Big 12, travels to Texas on Saturday, Heaps and Cozart will split the snaps for the second straight week. It might be a 50-50 proposition -- unless one quarterback steps up -- and Cozart will get another chance to prove he's the future.

Then why would he go to Kansas? They're first, foremost and ONLY a basketball school.

Maybe he will be the next Cassell

I don't remember Cassell being rated as high as Heaps coming out of HS.

I wouldn't look past this game, coach Weis is hungry for a win.

Gotta agree....by looking at the man, you can't argue how successful he is when he's "hungry".

Unlikely he was rated as high. Heaps was the no. 1 ranked QB in his class, 63rd in the nation and no. 1 ranked in his state.

Good point and I do know that you and I, were pretty high on Heaps coming out of HS.

Hungry for a win-there are so many comments that could follow.

Is the fat man done at the end of the year? He has no better record than TG did.
