I think it is safe to say Gurley is the starting TB, we know Mason will be the QB, and with Quayvon Hicks moving to TE the fullback job will remain with Merritt Hall. Speaking of TE, I'd think Hicks, Rome (depending on his recovery), and Jordan Davis sharing TE reps, probably with incoming Freshman Jeb Blazevich. It wouldn't surprise me to see some packages with two TEs if Blazevich is all that at running routes. Conley will definitely catch passes, but who knows from what position.
The other thing that caught my eye is about the offensive line
Greg Pyke has a leg up at right guard and Brandon Kublanow or Kolton Houston could start at left guard.So there is that. Can we assume the left tackle is set with Theus? If there is one position we need someone to step up their game, especially considering what Bobo wants to do with Mason, it is Theus at left tackle.
“You talk about those two guard positions are up for grabs,” quarterback Huston Mason said. “Coach (Will) Friend and Coach (Mike) Bobo did a lot of rearranging in the spring. We tried a lot of different guys out in different spots. They haven’t really named any starting lineup. I’m sure they have a good idea of what they’re going to try out in preseason camp. It’s still up for grabs.”
