Playing time outlook: center
Center rotation pattern: Three year starter Matt Anderson has moved on, leaving Jason Glynn as his heir apparent at center. Glynn, a redshirt sophomore, played in 11 games last fall and logged significant game-on-the-line snaps during the second half of the season, and the coaches don't expect any drop-off in performance at the position. The slightly undersized Glynn (6-2, 275) should take the vast majority of the early season game-on-the-line snaps this fall, but redshirt freshman Will Allen, following an impressive spring, could provide back-up support similar to that of Glynn last season. In other words, both Glynn and Allen are poised to be "starters" at the position as the season progresses. Utility interior lineman Beau Baker, who will be part of the three-man rotation at guard, could also if needed step into the center spot, where he served as Anderson's primary back-up in '00 before focusing on guard in '01 and during spring. Trey Bates is the No. 4 guy at center and is unlikely to see action until late in blowouts. True freshman playing time? Barring a rash of injuries, no chance.
