RUSTON - Following practice Monday morning Louisiana Tech coach Jack Bicknell announced following that freshman Dennis Morris has been moved to defensive end after working his first week of camp at outside linebacker. Morris, a true freshman from Woodlawn High School in Shreveport, was moved for a number of reasons according to Bicknell. "I really think his natural position is going to be defensive end in the long run," Bicknell said. "He`s already 260 pounds and will only get bigger and stronger. He`s got a quick first step, plus we need him at defensive end right now." Morris` move came only three days after junior defensive end Jared Parten suffered a season-ending injury leaving the Bulldogs thing at the position. "He was a high energy, very intense player," Bicknell said. "We are going to apply for a medical red-shirt for him. We`ll just have to see." Bicknell also said that sophomore offensive lineman Bill Jones has moved up the depth chart and is running with the first team at right tackle, moving junior Ryan Considine inside to right guard and replacing senior Marcus Lindsey for the time being in the starting lineup. "Marcus is in a battle right now," Bicknell said. "We have six guys who are really competing for those top five spots. I think Ryan`s natural position is at guard but it`s all a matter of if Bill can get things down. I feel good about all six guys." Tech will practice Tuesday at 6:45 p.m. in preparation for the Bulldogs lone scrimmage of the fall which is set for Saturday at 9 a.m.
