HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - With Marshall's Green-White Game today more of a scrimmage and less of an actual game, a review of the spring season is in order.
The game takes place at 2 p.m., with admission $10 for adults and $5 for youth 17 and under. Parking in prime areas (West Lot, West Lot Annex, softball field) is $20, and only the stadium's west side will be used.
A boiled-down primer on who's who at all positions:
Quarterback - No controversy here. The order is clear-cut: Rakeem Cato, Blake Frohnapfel, Gunnar Holcombe and Kevin Anderson. The only question is how much Cato is used today before retiring his shoulder pads.
Running back - Without Kevin Grooms (likely suspended), you'll see Steward Butler, Remi Watson and heavy doses of Essray Taliaferro. All can break a good run, especially Butler.
Offensive line - MU has used the same unit just about all spring - from left tackle to right tackle, Gage Niemeyer, Sebastian Johansson, Chris Jasperse, Alex Schooler, Garrett Scott. Tyler Combs bears watching at No. 2 center.
This won't be the final depth chart, not with returning starter Jordan Jeffries and No. 2 center Cam Dees held out from contact.
Wide receivers - The first unit has generally consisted of Demetrius Evans (X), Craig Wilkins (Z) and Tommy Shuler (slot), but only Shuler's place is secure. These are the positions to pay the most attention offensively.
Shawney Kersey could be the most dangerous weapon - if he can catch. Devon "Moo-Moo" Smith is as shifty as advertised, making four- and five-receiver sets that much more dangerous.
Tight ends - With Gator Hoskins sitting out the spring, Eric Frohnapfel has been the no-doubt No. 1. Freshman Stefone Grace is still learning, but has raised an eyebrow here and there.
Defensive line - The starters have been ends Jeremiah Taylor and Alex Bazzie, with tackles Steve Dillon and Brandon Sparrow. What lurks behind them is an issue - for instance, how effective can Joe Massaquoi be? Can Ra'Shawde Myers and Armonze Daniel contribute?
