Turn back the clock.

That's what it felt like during LSU's second practice of the spring Tuesday. Former players Leonard Fournette, DJ Chark and Danny Etling returned to watch the Tigers go through drills in a sun-bathed afternoon on the Charles McClendon practice fields.

Former Tigers were surrounded by, potentially, future Tigers. At least two 5-star prospects were on hand for practice, including Hawaii 5-star DT Faatui Tuitele and OT Kenyon Green.

Observations from current LSU football players are below.

  • First off, the team provided a spring roster. That's available here
  • It appears that offensive line grad assistant John Decoster is not only taking control of the tight ends, but he's handling the offensive tackles as well. O-line coach James Cregg is working with the guards. The two coaches split into their separate groups during drills Tuesday. 
  • It's really tough to get any kind of depth chart for any position, as we only see individual drills for about 15 minutes (and keep in mind that it's March), but here's at stab at where guys were working (don't pay attention to the order as much as the position):

LT: Jakori Savage/Badara Traore

RT Austin Deculus/Adrian Magee

C: Lloyd Cushenberry, Cole Smith

LG: Garrett Brumfield, Damien Lewis

RG: Ed Ingram, Donavaughn Campbell

  • Keep in mind that Saahdiq Charles, projected as LSU's left tackle, is not participating in spring as he continues to recover from January shoulder surgery. Deculus (wrist) is also only practicing on a limited basis. 
  • NG Ed Alexander and DE Davin Cotton continue to sit out drills. Both could rejoin the team later in spring. They're nursing injuries/recovering from medical procedures. Safety Ed Paris (knee) is doing the same, only participating in a limited role.
