As Utah State coach Gary Andersen starts his third spring with the team, he is instituting a lot of changes. One thing is that you may see a lot less shotgun out of the Aggies. Running back Robert Turbin says they are getting away from the option to establish more power running and play action. Other changes are that receiver Dontel Watkins has been moved to defensive back while Rashard Stewart, who dabbled at receiver and corner, is firmly entrenched at receiver with big expectations for him this year.
The shotgun offense fit the skills of former quarterback Diondre Borel, but the Aggies will now highlight a power rushing attack. Also look for Stewart to be used all over the field to take advantage of his speed and quickness.
