Spring football has started throughout the West and the South, and the mood at most schools mirrors the Grapefruit League. Show up, get some reps, don’t get hurt and see you in the fall.

Keep an eye on these spots the next few weeks after practices get started everywhere to see which new players get a jump on the starting lineup.
