Meanwhile, spirited scrums are expected at the E, SAM and SS spots. But for sheer drama, these five spots could be the most compelling:
BUCK: Is Kache Palacio (pictured) ready this season to become a full-time starter or remain a situational sparkplug? Is Ivan McLennan ready to become a consistent presence? And/or is Emmitt Su'a-Kalio, he of the high ceiling, about to burst onto the scene?
WIL: This could be a two-man battle between Tana Pritchard (pictured)and Chester Sua -- but Jeremiah Allison or rookie Dylan Hanser could also crash the party. Whether it's two or more, this one could be fun to watch.
BCB: Sometimes it means good things if there's a tie in the two-deeps. But if Charleston White (pictured horizontally) and Tracy Clark battle to a draw this spring at the boundary corner, that might not be the case. Is White ready for prime time? Could Clark suddenly blossom in his fifth year?
FCB: Daquawn Brown (pictured, left) looked like a virtual starting lock earlier this offseason before his legal woes. Meanwhile, Marcellus Pippins since arriving in January has impressed in his short time at WSU. It should add up to must-see viewing at the field corner position.
