Sherrone Moore's first spring game as head man of Michigan football is finally here. It's the public's first chance to see what he gets to witness everyday behind the closed curtains of practice. A lot of questions surround the roster and some will get answered for the most part on Saturday, while others will linger on until opening day in August. What follows are three intriguing groups who the masses should be focused on to see how they shape up for the fall.

1. Offensive Line depth

Four of the five starters appear to be set in stone for now. The fifth could earn the gig this Saturday with a strong showing. That battle seems to be between Andrew Gentry and Jeffrey Persi. Persi had five appearances on the line for Michigan football in 2023, both at guard and tackle. Gentry got in seven times at both spots as well. They both saw time on special teams too. Michigan could add a big ugly or two through the portal still to compete.

All five starters could be separated on each team, depending upon how coach Moore decides to play them. Word is that some may not even suit up either.

The reserves will also be something to monitor in case a starter goes down in that case. Michigan's highest rated recruit in the trenches is not enrolled on campus yet either. Andrew Sprague could factor into the mix come August, but don't count on that.
