The Next Offensive Line. A-J Media’s Don Williams writes about the next wave of offensive linemen:
Who among the young understudies impressed line coach Brandon Jones and the offensive staff last season?
“I think Zach (Adams) was a guy we would have felt comfortable putting in there at tackle,” Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury said in an interview with A-J Media. “He grew on coach Jones as the year went on, and then Will Farrar is a guy we think has tremendous upside. Those would be two young guys that jump out to me.”
