A look at the state of the offensive line

After the spring game Tom Herman voiced concerns over depth on the offensive line. I somewhat brushed those concerns off saying, “depth will only be debilitating if you have multiple injuries at the same time.” Then we found out Herman and Derek Warehime had a Murphy’s Law debt to finish paying from their previous year at Houston where anything that could go wrong on the offensive line did.

Clarity on numbers? Sorta.

Like everything with the NCAA, finding clarity on “initial counters” (signees who count towards the 25 man class limit) is much more difficult than it should be. Finding the actual, new NCAA text is proving difficult.

With the de-commitment of Juco tight end Dominick Wood-Anderson, the staff is back to 18 pledges. I won’t lose any sleep over Wood-Anderson, even when he likely ends up at OU, but tight end has been a question mark on the field and in the class. Hold that thought.

Joseph Ossai: Season first, decision second

Conroe Oak Ridge defender Joseph Ossai may have one of the best mental evaluations I’ve seen in some time. We know he prides himself on academics and wants to be an engineer but that’s only part of it, he is also a tireless worker and natural leader who takes football very seriously.
