With a solid group of linebackers returning, and Joseph Ross taking over as defensive coordinator, Westmoore is switching to a 3-4 look. The most prominent of the Jaguars' linebackers is Josh Morgan,

One of the few areas where Westmoore is inexperienced is at receiver, where West's shift and graduation left the Jaguars needing to fill holes.

Junior Lexus Lee returns at the slot position.

“He's not super super fast but he's really athletic,” Langford said.

Junior Austin Dodd and sophomore Colin Morris are among the players Langford is looking toward to fill the other holes.

“We've got some good prospects there but until I see them do it during the Moore War or Southwest Showdown or games like that, we won't know for sure,” Langford said.

The Jaguars also return both of their starting running backs, including Austin Richards, who ran for more than 1,350 yards as a junior. Kieron Hardrick also returns there.

“Austin might not have that big of a number this year because Jhames is going to get some of those carries but I look for his average, which has been right at five yards per carry, to creep up a bit,” Langford said. “We don't have to bang on him and we'll be able to keep his fresh this year.”
