With FIU opening spring football practices on March 19 — and the spring game set for April 12 — here are some story lines:
u25aa Christian Alexander transferred, which left the backup quarterback job up for grabs. Kaylan Wiggins and Caleb Lynum will compete this spring with All-Tennessee whiz kid Stone Norton joining the battle this summer. James Morgan returns as the starter.
u25aa There are jobs available on the offensive line. Tackle D’Ante Demery, guard Shane McGough and center Dallas Connell are established, but, after that, it’s fairly open. Junior college transfer Logan Gunderson is already on campus, and he will get a shot to start at guard.
