Everett Withers kicked off spring practice by meeting with the leering press; he brought up some interesting points:
- As many as nine starters are out for spring ball including Jashon Waddy, Mason Hays, Kordell Rogers, and Ishmael Davis.
- He believes the quarterback position is much more athletic than last year, noting that Willie Jones III and Jaylen Gipson headlined the group.
- The Bobcats will field 88 players for spring practice, more than at any other time in Withers' tenure.
- Withers admitted that he wanted to continue to add to his 2018 class and continues to recruit players to compete next season.
- Withers focused on his team increasing in size; he distinguished, not fatter, but bigger.
