Auburn's coaching staff approaches spring practice with plenty of question marks. One that likely won't be fully resolved this spring is who's the starting quarterback for next season.

Returning passers Kiehl Frazier and Jonathan Wallace will be joined by three signees in preseason camp, taking it from a two-man race to a five-quarterback derby.

Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee knows there are a lot of unknowns at that position but says "the best guy for us and for this team will rise up." Lashlee and Gus Malzahn's other assistant coaches spoke to reporters Thursday about the recent signing class and spring practice, which begins on March 27.

Lashlee says all five quarterbacks expected to be on the roster next season are athletic and good fits for the offense.
