Advocate staff photo by BILL FEIG -- LSU running back Leonard Fournette (7) runs through the hole in the line provided by LSU fullback John David Moore (44), offensive lineman Ethan Pocic (77) and offensive lineman Maea Teuhema (75) during the first half Saturday, Oct. 3, 2015, in Tiger Stadium.

LSU Spring Position Recap is a 7-part series highlighting each position’s performance during spring and outlook heading into summer workouts.

Position: Offensive line

Spring Starting Lineup (immediate backup):

  • LT: Maea Teuhema (Chidi Okeke)
  • LG: Garrett Brumfield (Adrian Magee)
  • C: Andy Dodd (K.J. Malone)
  • RG: Josh Boutte (Adrian Magee)
  • RT: Toby Weathersby (K.J. Malone)

Projected Fall Starting Lineup (immediate backup):

  • LT: Maeau Teuhema (K.J. Malone)
  • LG: Will Clapp (Garrett Brumfield)
  • C: Ethan Pocic (Andy Dodd)
  • RG: Josh Boutte (Garrett Brumfield)
  • RT: Toby Weathersby (K.J. Malone)

Three Things Learned:

  • Maea at left tackle: Teuhema, a rising sophomore who started as a true freshman last season, moved from left guard to left tackle. Coaches hope he can secure that spot, but, if not, Ethan Pocic could potentially move to left tackle in preseason camp. Teuhema struggled, at times, in the spring game against the talented Arden Key and veteran Christian LaCouture.
  • The right fit: Could LSU have two true sophomores at the tackles? Yep. Toby Weathersby worked with the first-string for the first three weeks of LSU’s five-week spring practice before he stepped aside with an unknown injury. This position doesn’t seem completely stable, though. It appears that K.J. Malone is seriously pushing Weathersby for playing time here. Malone started the spring game with Weathersby out.
    Josh Boutte and Garrett Brumfield are competing at guard.

  • Guard battle: Aside from Pocic’s potential move to left tackle, the right/left guard position is one to watch during preseason camp. Garrett Brumfield appears to be challenging projected starter Josh Boutte. Is this finally Boutte’s year? It appears so, but don’t sleep on Brumfield, who battled injuries early this spring and last preseason camp.
