"I think right now, after spring ball… I think it’s like a 4-way tie," Milton said. "I don’t know if anybody’s leading right now.  Because like, I don’t want to hype myself up over nobody else, but I think it’s a tie right now."
"It’s a 4-way tie. Competition’s going to be strong in the fall.  So, just gotta fight for it."

Joe Milton enrolling early. One wonders if this is related to Speight's announcement, opening up room already by January?

Peters, McCaffrey, and Milton have something in common that their predecessors did not: fully recruited QB's by Jim Harbaugh. 

I got the feeling this year that they did not want to play Peters at all, and felt their hand was forced--like, they wanted him not just to be ready, but to play at All-American level right out of the gate.

I think we'll be taking a huge step up at QB in 2018, and that it will probably be McCaffrey. I also think that we will see both of those things to be true already at the spring game.

A lot of what we've seen before: Suspect mechanics but OMG arm strength. 

The other thing that stood out to me was his accuracy, both on improvised plays and designed throws. Yes it's a highlight video, but that's an awful lot of DO or CA passes.
