This week is the final week of spring practice. Though some positions are starting to fall into place, other battles will continue through the summer and into August.

Field Corner: Donaldven Manning (#30, 5-9, 174, So.), Donovan Riley (#2, 5-11, 202, So.)
Free safety: Detrick Bonner (#8, 6-0, 189, r-Jr.), Der’Woun Greene (#23, 5-10, 187, r-Fr.)

Boundary Corner: Kyle Fuller (#17, 6-0, 189, Sr.), Brandon Facyson (#31, 6-2, 183, Fr.)
