Head coach Jim Harbaugh hasn’t weighed in on any type of pecking order since Speight completed five of his six throws while passing for one touchdown and running for another to lead his half of the roster to a 14-13 spring game victory. A couple weeks after the scrimmage, Harbaugh said it was too early to make any evaluations of the quarterbacks public. From the outside looking in, Speight has been the most consistent operator of the Wolverine offense throughout the spring.
