AUBURN, Ala. — Newcomers Nick Marshall and Jeremy Johnson are playing catch up to Kiehl Frazier and Jonathan Wallace in Auburn's quarterback race, but that's OK. Four practices in, offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee says he's still collecting information on just where everybody stands.

"We’re nowhere near trying to make any decisions at this point," Lashlee said after Monday's practice. "The hardest thing is when you’ve got four guys and you’re really trying to evaluate all four of them to give them the right amount of looks.

"I think we have been able to do that though. We have thrown a lot of balls in the last four days. You can tell there is great carryover from the older two guys that were here in the spring and the younger two guys are real eager."

Frazier and Wallace left spring practice tied for first, but Lashlee and head coach Gus Malzahn made a point to say they didn't know who the starter would be. Now, the two offensive-minded coaches have added big-arm junior college transfer in Marshall and the state's Mr. Football in Johnson.
