Jacob Charest, former Butler quarterback, could get his first snaps behind center for the Illinois Illini Saturday, the Daily Illini reported. Illinois takes on Indiana.
Either senior Juice Williams or junior Eddie McGee will get the nod as the starting signal caller for Saturday, but Charest offers a different game than the two dual-threat quarterbacks.
“When Jacob’s in there the offense maybe does change a little bit,” Zook said. “Not that Jacob can’t move around, but the option isn’t exactly his forte. Maybe down the road when we get into those situations, but it’s just hard to get three guys ready to do each week.”
