Offensive tackles Kyle Meadows and Cole Mosier did the work over the summer to make themselves better and offensive coordinator Eddie Gran has noticed.
“We really wanted to make sure the speed rush, the up and under stuff that we were getting those guys contained. You saw in the spring game, that wasn’t so good at times. They’re getting better but with a lot of work left to do,” he said.
He said the goal now is to develop a third tackle. George Asafo-Adjei, a guard, is working some at tackle.
“(Freshman) Landon (Young) is getting some work over there. He keeps developing. I think that group is really smart. I like them. You can tell them one thing and they do everything they can to get it fixed. You don’t have to keep correcting it. I really like that group. They’ve done a nice job,” Gran said Monday after what he called a “sluggish” practice.
Stoops addressed the team about some practice mistakes that Gran does not expect to see again.
“It’s been so far, so good. It’s going to be good to get their bodies right now and then come out for a double day tomorrow. It’s our third double day and they’ve got to push through. This is where we’re going to find out and define our football team as coach Stoops said. That’s been the challenge to all of them,” Gran said.
