'Dogs Getting Defensive At Spring Practice

The Fresno State football team is working on bolstering the defensive front during spring practice.

The Bulldogs are moving Tyeler Davison from nose tackle to defensive end, and head coach Tim DeRuyter likes the possibilities.

DeRuyter says the move adds some bulk to the position with the 300-pound Davison.

The coach also says Fresno State has flexibility and depth at the front of its 3-4 defense.

Davison, Nikko Motta and Andy Jennings each have experience playing nose tackle and defensive end.

Other players expected to be in the mix along the front include newcomers Maurice Poyadue, Claudell Louis, Jaylen Ruiz and Ryan Steele.

Fresno State's annual Spring Game is scheduled for Saturday, March 23rd.
