OU spring review: Interior linemen

Injuries plagued OU during the spring, but there was still a lot to look at for the Sooners.

A lot of questions were asked before Oklahoma started spring practice. Some were answered, some are still to be decided, while new ones popped up.

SoonersIllustrated.com is going to take a position-by-position look of what we learned about the Sooners from spring practice during the next couple of weeks.

Interior linemen

A grade of incomplete is about all you can gather from spring football. Projected starting guards Nila Kasitati and Adam Shead didn't get much time in at all and Shead didn't get any time in.

The spring was a big time for guard Dionte Savage and for center Ty Darlington. Savage emerged toward the end of last season, while Darlington is taking over for Gabe Ikard at center. No enviable task, but he has made a nice transition so far.

Outside of that, you start looking at guys providing depth as much as contributing in major ways for the Sooners. Players like Kyle Marrs and Tony Feo are necessary, but it won't be good for OU if they're going to be asked to start.

The other name to watch will be Tyler Evans, who continues to try to come back for a senior season. How much he can help still remains to be seen.
