There was news out of practice Tuesday, after all.
Sophomore starting left guard Jordan Rigsbee spent the afternoon working as the first-team center.
“We’re looking at it,” Dykes said afterward.
Senior Mark Brazinski has started the past three games at center since Chris Adcock blew out his knee in practice.
He also confirmed that true freshman Chris Borrayo, a 6-foot-5, 290-pounder from from Paramount High in the San Gabriel Valley, will be pulled out of his redshirt year.
Borrayo was working at Rigsbee’s left guard spot on the first unit.
Meanwhile, redshirt freshman Christian Okafor took some reps at No. 1 left tackle, Freddie Tagaloa’s spot. Tagaloa got some time at right guard.
So, for much of pratice Tuesday, the Bears’ starting O-line featured just one player — junior Alejandro Crosthwaite — who played the same position when the team took the field Saturday against Oregon State.
Here’s how it looked: RT Steven Moore (back after battling strep throat last week), RG Crosthwaite, C Rigsbee, LG Borrayo, LT Okafor.
Stay tuned. None of it’s cast in stone and there are a lot of moving parts right now.
