From some of the young and/or returning players:
The first three comments: looking forward to next season's O-line:
Adam Kraus (who has really slimmed down, even moreso, he looks 6-5, 290): "I've been taking some snaps at center. I'd play it if they want me to."
Justin Boren (still growing in height, he looks over 6-3 now): "I've just never played center before, but I've been taking some snaps there, yes."
Alex Mitchell (who has also really slimmed down, even moreso, he looks 6-5, 290): "I've been taking snaps at both guard and tackle. I've always said I liked guard better, but I'd play either."
Shawn Crable (on returning for his final season): "Why wouldn't I come back? I haven't accomplished anything here year, that's my view. I was surprised when people started asking me if I was coming back."
Brandon Graham (looking big but not overly so, and in great shape): "I'm playing defensive end -- that's my spot! I'm 260 pounds and can play pretty fast at this weight."
James McKinney: "I'm taking a few snaps at defensive end, but it looks like defensive tackle. Marques (Slocum) and I have talked about playing D-tackle together. I'll let Graham have the defensive end spot."
McKinney on Marques Slocum: "He's doing fine. He's not out here though -- the rules don't allow it now. He's doing well in school."
Jonas Mouton: "Yeah, I'm playing linebacker -- how did you know already! I'm playing SAM linebacker. I like it."
Johnny Sears: "I appreciate the experience I got when I played this year, especially in the Michigan State game. I'm looking forward to next season."
Willis Barringer: "I'm 100%. If USC overlooks me, that'd be great!"
