The football season is over and now it is time to look ahead. Signing day may still be a few weeks away, but what Arizona football will look like next season is already shaping up. We continue out first look at the Wildcat football team with a look at the offensive line.
OVERVIEW: The Wildcats will be gutted. They lose six seniors and an injury to another former starter will leave them with just one player who has ever started a D-I football game.
SAY GOODBYE TO: Everyone…Colin Baxter, Phillip Garcia, Adam Grant, Jovon Hayes, Conan Amituanai, Jack Julsing and Vaughn Dotsy. The first six all graduate, while a back injury will injury will prematurely end the career of Dotsy. Baxter, Garcia, Grant, Hayes and Amituanai had a combined 24 years in the program. To further clean house, offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh left for West Virginia.
SAY HELLO TO: Addison Bachman. The junior college transfer will likely start at either center or guard.
GET TO KNOW: Fabbians Ebelle, Trent Spurgeon and Mickey Baucus. The three redshirt freshmen are the future at tackle for Arizona. Baucus and Ebelle could win starting jobs next year.
QUESTIONS: Will the Wildcats add anymore JC players? Will Bachman or Quinn be the center? How will the Wildcats adjust to Robert Anae as OL coach? Just who will play guard? How long will it take this unit to gel?
