Kansas Football Recruiting 2013: Offensive Line

Offensive line was a pretty critical position for the Jayhawks as they would need to absorb the loss of three senior starts in Trevor Marrongelli, Tanner Hawkinson and Duane Zlatnik. To make that task more challenging, a large portion of Turner Gill's foundational offensive line class has since departed Lawrence or just the game of football in some instances. That means that Kansas returns Randall Dent, who showed some positive signs last year, Aslam Sterling, Riley Spencer and Gavin Howard. Damon Martin also saw some playing time before finding himself in a bit of a doghouse for whatever reason. The Jayhawks need a healthy Riley Spencer which has yet to happen during his career. Sterling needs to progress into a tackle and the incoming junior college talent will be critical as well. As for the remainder of the class, it checks in with just one and that's Kentucky high school prospect Joey Bloomfield.

At 6'6" 305, Bloomfield is already a good sized player and has the potential to develop quickly for Kansas. That said, it's not likely that a true freshman would step in and start on the offensive line nor is that preferable for the program. Bloomfield was recruited hard by Kansas State, Colorado and was even getting calls very late in the process. All along he remained loyal to Kansas which is a great sign for someone coming into the program. That's been one of the most refreshing things when you look at the recruiting record under coach Weis, Kansas receives a commitment and the majority of the time it holds.
