There aren't too many new developments after the first two weeks of spring practice, but we have been able to get some insight on the new coaching staff and what they expect from the players. It's also nice to be able to get out there on a consistent basis to bring you the most up to date information. While the media wasn't allowed to stay the entire time today, here a some things I saw.
*As I've been repeating for a couple weeks now, Nick Waisome, Tyler Hunter, Ronald Darby and Demonte McAllister were all out there today.
*Demonte McAllister was actually carrying around the practice script and was pretty involved with helping Jeremy Pruitt.
*Nick Waisome, who is still using a crutch, was actually riding the stationary today. That's the first time I've seen that.
*Austin Barron was not in pads today, but he did participate in team stretches. I'm not really sure what's wrong with him, but I can't imagine it's anything serious if he was doing team stretches.
*I saw John Battle, a safety out of Hallandale High School, out there today. Sunseri set some time aside to introduce him to Jimbo and some of the staff. Battle is being recruited by Sunseri.
*Also, I know I previously mentioned his presence, but Terrell Lyons has been out there every day this week, and I assume that means he's eager to get to work.
*They finally brought the gunners out in the punt formation today, and it looks like Lamarcus Joyner and P.J. Williams are going to be those guys, at least for now.
*Also, for those who were asking yesterday, P.J. is pretty much as tall as I thought. Basically 6'1.
*Derrick Mitchell was getting first team reps today, mainly in the 3-4 set.
*That 3-4 had Derrick Mitchell, Timmy Jernigan, and Mario Edwards Jr. up front.
*They were also working on some safety blitzes out of the 3-4 with Karlos Williams shooting the "B" gap and Terrence Brooks coming off the edge. Pruitt definitely going to bring a mixture of looks to the defense in 2013. Should be exciting to watch.
*Bobby Hart seems to be getting more and more comfortable at RT, but he still has a lot of work to do. His feet just aren't as quick as you'd want for the right side, but there's still plenty of time.
There obviously wasn't much to see this morning in the short period of time we were out there, but it'll be interesting to see how some of these things pan out as we grow closer to the spring game.
