Could freshman win Mizzou QB job?

The first three candidates for the Missouri Tigers' starting quarterback job are obvious: returning starter and senior-to-be James Franklin. Also in the way are backup Corbin Berkstresser, who started four games last season, and Maty Mauk, who redshirted in the fall. That would be a crowded enough camp battle for most schools, but Missouri coach Gary Pinkel apparently isn't satisfied. Dave Matter of the Columbia Daily Tribune says that Pinkel will give incoming freshmen Trent Hosick and Eddie Printz a chance to win the job.
