Spring ball began on Monday, and with it came an update to the team roster. The early enrollees and transfers now have official heights and weights, as well as their jersey numbers. There weren't many other changes, with just one player switching positions and one number change.

Early Enrollees

  • QB Christian Veilleuz - No. 9 (6'4, 204lbs)
  • OL Nate Bruce - No. 64 (6'4, 351 lbs)
  • OL Landon Tengwall - No. 58 (6'6, 317 lbs)
  • CB Jeffrey Davis Jr. - No. 24 (6'0, 172 lbs)
  • CB Kalen King - No. 4 (5'11, 185 lbs)
  • LB Kobe King.- No. 41 (6'1, 242 lbs)
  • DE Rodney McGraw - No. 90 (6'5, 256 lbs)

Transfers

  • CB Johnny Dixon - No. 3 (6'0, 192 lbs) So.
  • DE Arnold Ebiketie - No. 17 (6'3, 244 lbs) RS Jr.
  • RB John Lovett - No. 23 (6'0, 210 lbs) Sr.
  • DT Derrick Tangelo - No. 54 (6'2, 306 lbs) Sr.

Number Changes

Just one number change this year, with quarterback Ta'Quan Roberson switching to No. 2. He previously wore No. 9, while former quarterback Micah Bowens had No. 2.

Position Changes

As many expected, 2020 signee Zuriah Fisher has moved from linebacker to defensive end. He'll add some much-needed depth to a young and inexperienced position room.
