Three questions for the Baylor Bears this spring

Matt Rhule starts his first spring practice with holes along the lines and questions at quarterback, but Baylor's new coach promises flexibility.

Max Olson ESPN Staff Writer 

Baylor coach Matt Rhule said sophomore QB Zach Smith will get the first-team reps when the Bears begin spring practice on Saturday, but he'll rotate with Arizona grad transfer Anu Solomon and freshman Charlie Brewer. Smith gets the nod to start off based on his experience, but this should be an intriguing competition to watch this spring and Rhule didn't lay out a clear timetable for naming his starter.
