Good to know Ellis was hurt. He had solid JUCO credentials but didn't see him on game participation reports. Always get nervous about potential of late spring adds.Vaughn will be a starter at one of the LB spots.
Other contenders will be the 3 true freshman this year (McLaughlin, Willich, Imming) a couple of guys who have had run on special teams (Mendeszoon, Marshall) and a guy who was injured this year (Jacob Ellis).
Just my opinion but I think the starters will be McLaughlin in the middle, Vaughn and Willich on the outside.
