USU coach Matt Wells described Keeton as "right on track."

Wells was generally disappointed with the way the Aggies responded to their seventh session of spring practice, describing the morning's performance in cool, windy conditions at Romney Stadium as "a little sluggish."

Wells added, "Some guys figured it out; some guys didn't."

He pointed out that "not every day is going to [produce] the same amount of excitement" during the the spring, requiring players to find motivation. "Right now, it's a grind."

Wells likes the development of the offensive line, saying he's "a little pleasantly surprised" with the progress. He's particularly happy with pass protection, against the variety of looks from defensive coordinator Todd Orlando — "not a stagnant front" that would be easier to block.

Senior tackle Kevin Whimpey said, "We've put in a ton of work in the film room. We know our stuff; now, it's just a matter of learning the technique."

Whimpey continued, "My role is just to be the teacher. It's my job to get the guys right, when the coaches are away. When the coaches can't be with us, I'm in there with them, teaching. I love it."
