A-State Nation Radio interviewed Arkansas State offensive line coach Glen Elarbee on Monday. He sheds some light on the improved depth situation on the line. Click here for the interview on 95.3 the Ticket.
Probable starters going out of spring:
T Kyle Harris or Colton Jackson
G Colton Jackson or Steven Stevens
C Devin Mondie or Daniel Keith
G Daniel Keith of Devin Mondie
T Jemar Clark
It sounds like Jackson, Mondie, Keith, and Clark will start somewhere for sure, and Kyle Harris is the favorite to be the 5th starter going out of spring, wich would push the 2-year starter at tackle, Colton Jackson, inside to guard.
Elarbee on depth issues:
When we get “Tank” Austin Moreton back, and get in one of these Freshman I think we’ll be fairly, knock on wood, fairly good 2-deep wise with depth. Now we’ve been so snake-bit by injures I hate to say.
Elarbee also indicated that the lack of depth was so critically bad at the end of 2014, that TE Kenny Rains was under consideration at tackle or center.
