Advocate staff photo by BILL FEIG -- Will Clapp, Vadal Alexander and the rest of LSU's offensive line will see a different kind of defensive front against Texas Tech.

This is the seventh of a seven-part series starting Sunday and ending Saturday, the first day of LSU's spring football practice.

Spring movement: LOW

The movement here, if any, will likely be at the guard positions. 

Both spots are "open," as Clapp may shift to center during preseason camp. Teuhema, with his 21 starts, is a natural to slide in at left guard. He started 11 games at that spot as a freshman in 2015. 

The other spot is expected to be one of the most competitive battles of the spring and preseason camp: Brumfield vs. Campbell. This could wage throughout the summer and into preseason camp. Brumfield, a local kid from U-High, is a fourth-year player who's waited behind several players for his shot. Campbell, a Ponchatoula product, leaped up the depth chart last season as a freshman.

Weathersby may be limited or out during spring after undergoing a minor offseason procedure. His status isn't completely clear. Cushenberry is expected to see reps at center while Clapp recovers from offseason shoulder surgery. Deculus is the new guy to the group, a big Texas who enrolled early in January. 

Fall expectation 

The Tigers will have three offensive line signees join in the summer, but Deculus probably has the best shot of any rookie to play early. However, starting as a true freshman on the line is no easy thing.
