Mailbag Oct.21: How Are Some Of The Freshmen Offensive Linemen Doing?

by Categorized: Mailbag Tagged: , Date:


Q: Any update on how some of the freshman Olineman are doing in practice is there any hope one of them could step up and fill the tackle spots next year? Pete, Shelton

A: I think it’s safe to say depth is an issue here. There were a lot of line recruits at the USF game, Pete. If I’m guessing today I’m saying Levy and probably Hemingway, Tommy Hopkins maybe? Dalton Gifford is a sophomore but has to step up. Schafenacker and Samra at the guards but who really knows today. You may get transfers here because they’re so young and inexperienced,but again, who know today? I think right now the focus is on developing the current group that’s out there to a point of consistency. Also, just a side note we haven’t been allowed at a practice since August. That’s pretty common around the country after camps break.¬†Thanks, Pete
