Michigan St may add 3rd QB to mix

Posted: Updated:

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Mark Dantonio could have his third quarterback rotation in as many games with Michigan State freshman Damion Terry officially in the mix for Saturday's game against Youngstown State.

Terry is expected to get the second-most repetitions at practice, behind second-game starter Connor Cook. The Spartans (2-0) are looking for answers for an offense that has scored just two touchdowns, half the output of their defense.

If Terry is solid the next three days, he should see the field against the Penguins, a team that has put up 95 points in two games, both wins. Dantonio added that he won't risk burning a top prospect's redshirt year for one appearance.

The team needs Cook, Terry, Andrew Maxwell or Tyler O'Connor to emerge as the starting quarterback.
