Inside the Gameplan: Looking at grad transfers and the OL

There’s probably no unit causing greater consternation amongst Texas fans for the 2018 season than the offensive line. The unit was absolutely dreadful in 2017 while relying regularly on a true freshman RT in Derek Kerstetter, a grievously undersized senior in Terell Cuney at RG or C depending on the week, and then a rotation of heavy-footed senior tackle Tristan Nickelson and underdeveloped sophomore Denzel Okafor at LT. Texas regularly had below average players (on a B12 scale) at multiple spots up front which made for a difficult time both in protecting a pair of underclassmen QBs and avoiding negative plays in the run game.
