Youngstown State opened spring drills this week. They will be looking for a new QB and most of the D, who were lost thru graduation and the Portal. Good news is their RB King returns for a final season, most of the OL is back, they are deep at WRs and have solid kickers returning. Y S U just added their last coaching opening with a coach from Colgate.

While making the playoffs last year, they have a lot of work to do to return. While YSU talent remains better than 90% of FCS, the challenge remains to finish in the upper half of the MVFC. Standards are high. Itís early to see what the rest of MVFC looks like for next year, but they must solve their QB opening and rebuild a D in order to compete in the upper MVFC half.
