KEY RETURNEES: QB Matt Grothe, RBs Mike Ford and Ben Williams, DE George Selvie, LBs Tyrone McKenzie and Brouce Mompremier, SS Danny Verpaele, SS Carlton Williams, FS Nate Allen
NOTABLE INJURIES: OG Matt Huners, who had surgery after tearing knee ligaments during last year's spring game, will likely be limited as a precaution. He returned in the second half of last season and is competing to start as a senior. There are no significant injuries, and the Bulls will get receiver Colby Erskin back after he took a medical redshirt with a knee injury last fall.
SPRING PRIORITIES: Find starters to replace CBs Mike Jenkins and Trae Williams and MLB Ben Moffitt, the biggest losses from graduation. Find a second starting offensive tackle, likely by shifting G Ryan Schmidt over, and establish depth on both lines. Get new assistants Kevin Patrick and John Hendrick familiar with the defensive line and USF's system to ease their transition for the fall.
PRACTICE SCHEDULE: (closed to public) Today-Thursday; March 18, 19, 21; March 25, 26, 29 (scrimmage); April 1, 2, 4, 5 (scrimmage); April 9
SPRING GAME: 7 p.m. April 12, Raymond James Stadium
