Position Battle Preview: Linebacker

Despite two returning starters, there are some question marks surrounding the linebacker spot as the Orange enter fall camp. Which young players will join the rotation? Who will back up Marquis Spruill? How much will Josh Kirkland see the field? What type of impact will Cam Lynch have? CuseNation.com breaks down these questions and more inside.

Marquis Spruill has moved back to the middle for Syracuse, replacing the departed Siriki Diabate. This marks the fourth straight year where Spruill has made a position change. It also frees up a starting spot on the outside.

Waiting in the wings is Cam Lynch, who has been a solid rotational linebacker for the Orange over the last couple of years. Dyshawn Davis returns as one of the biggest playmakers on the defense.

Behind them, Luke Arciniega, Josh Kirkland, Oliver Vigille, and Lewellyn Coker, among others, are ready to emerge. John Garcia Jr. joins Mike McAllister to break it all down.
