Rodriguez also said he might play more than one quarterback against the Rebels.
If Solomon holds on to the job, it would mean Rodriguez would have his first non-senior starter at Arizona. The previous two seasons he started seniors, Matt Scott in 2012 and B.J. Denker in 2013.
Solomon was a touted recruit after a spectacular career at Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas. His team went 57-3 and won four state titles with Solomon as a four-year starter. He passed for 10,112 yards and 138 touchdowns with just 17 interceptions.
