Spring practices are set to begin soon, and this is an important time for a team. It's when a coaching staff can start to develop players, see which positions are weak and strong depth-wise and also install new schemes.
Spring practices are also important because they allow coaches to get their hands on early enrollees from the newly signed recruiting class.
Florida State has a dazzling running back who is already on campus, while Texas A&M has two 5-star recruits who chose to head to College Station early to compete for playing time this fall. Plus, Penn State has a receiver who will surprise a lot of people this spring.
