Ryan told reporters on Tuesday that Kerley is in the final three.

“I think we have three candidates for [the Wildcat],” Ryan said, “three good candidates. Will they be as good as Brad?  I don’t know about that.  Brad was a really special athlete.  I’m going to say it for the last time until we play Buffalo.  [He]  was the only guy at the time in college football who rushed for over 4,000 yards and passed for over 8,000 yards.

“He was ideal in that role, for sure, but I think [LaDainian Tomlinson], he’s thrown touchdowns.  All you have to do is ask my brother [Rob Ryan], because he threw a bunch against him, so he can do it certainly.  Then, Joe McKnight is an explosive athlete like Brad.  I think he’d be good in that role.  Then, [Jeremy] Kerley did that in college, so I think we have three guys.”

Time will tell of Kerley.

And what about that comment Westhoff once made that if Brad Smith leaves, then he would retire?  “The day he goes, I go.”

“As usual, I was lying,” Westhoff said.
