There are some new big men on campus this semester, and they are not wasting any time stepping into their positions on the MSU football team.
Junior defensive tackle Bobby Jones, freshman offensive lineman Brendon Moss, freshman quarterback Domenic Natale and freshman defensive tackle Diego Oquendo have all joined the Spartans this semester and are participating in spring football, getting a jump on the new recruits coming in the fall.
Jones, currently behind senior Domata Peko on the depth chart at defensive tackle, said it has been a difficult move, both on the field and in the classroom.
"It's a big adjustment trying to make it as I go through spring ball here and this semester," Jones said.
He also has switched positions from defensive end, a position he has played his whole life, to defensive tackle.
"I'm gonna play where they put me as long as I can get on the field," the 6-foot-4, 296-pound Jones said.
