Spring football, Trace Young to transfer

NCAA Football: Air Force at San Diego State Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Tuesday again, folks. With basketball over we have a lot of Spring football to keep you updated on as well as some transfer news from MW basketball. Take a look!

Aggies have good opening scrimmage

The first scrimmage under Gary Andersen is in the books for the Aggies. Andersen liked what he saw. The offense looked good and the defense played hard, even forcing a huge fumble and recovering at the offenses one yard line. That fumble would be the biggest miscue of the day on offense, at one point the offense put together three straight 70 yard drives for scores, two of which were led by star QB Jordan Love. WR Taylor Compton liked the energy and leadership saying “I love the attitude of the guys coming back into work every day knowing that they’ve got something to prove.” Make sure to read the whole article for the most up to date news on Utah State’s Spring football.

Presley out for season with torn ACL

UNLV’s Senior WR, Brandon Presley will miss the entire next football season with a torn left ACL. Tony Sanchez said it’s a huge blow for the team. Presley still has his original redshirt season available and would be able to return following this upcoming season. Presley led the team with 35 catches for 434 yards last season. It’s an unfortunate circumstance but the rebels will have to move forward without a key receiver.

San Diego State football update

San Diego State head football coach, Rocky Long liked some things at practice but knows theres work to do. Long says the team is definitely improving but emphasizes that there are still questions on both sides of the line. The Aztecs will also be looking for transfers at numerous positions to bolster the roster, including the DL because entire defensive line is graduating. It is also worthy to note that Freshman QB Jordan Brookshire is working his way up the depth charts to be Ryan Agnew’s backup, but a lot can change before the season starts Make sure to read the whole article for breakdowns at every position for the Aztecs.

QB battle in Las Vegas

Armani Rogers will be UNLV’s starting QB to start the season but the competition at the backup spot is up for grabs. Max Gilliam and RS Freshman Kenyon Oblad have been battling for the spot but HC Tony Sanchez says Gilliam has the advantage right now. Sanchez says Gilliam is a better runner and is more experienced but Oblad has the superior arm. Last season Gilliam started 7 games for the Rebels after Rogers hurt his toe. During those 7 games Gilliam racked up 1394 yards and 14 TDs while posting a 55.3 completion percentage.
