Georgia State Panthers quarterback-turned-defensive back Kelton Hill tweeted on Sunday that he still wants to play quarterback. In light of GSU's offensive struggles this year, and following their humbling 35-3 loss to William & Mary, some fans will agree with him.

Hill was moved to defensive back after losing the starting QB job to Ben McLane, but the Panthers' offense has been terrible, averaging less than 300 yards a game on their way to an 0-5 record. Hill started five games at QB last year, throwing for over 1000 yards and 11 touchdowns. Hill has also seen some time at wide receiver, as head coach Bill Curry wants take advantage of his athleticism.

Ronnie Bell handled the quarterbacking duties against William & Mary, throwing four interceptions and leading the offense to a dismal seven turnover performance. Offensive coordinator John Bond claims their hesitance to use Hill at QB is due to a weak grasp on the offense, but if things continue to go poorly for the Panthers, maybe Hill will get another look.
