Offensive Line

LT – Kenyon Green – 5-star in 2019, No. 15 overall, No. 3 at his position
LG – Tank Jenkins – 4-star in 2018, No. 253 overall, No. 11 at his position
C – Luke Matthews – 4-star in 2018, No. 368 overall, No. 17 at his position
RG – Barton Clement – 3-star in 2018, No. 381 overall, No. 18 at his position
RT – Colten Blanton – 4-star in 2018, No. 153 overall, No. 13 at his position

Of the position groups on this list, offensive line might be the closest to the actual starting lineup in 2020 when looking back on this next year.

Kenyon Green is a potential All American and could find himself in the starting lineup this season let alone next. It will be tough to keep a 5-star product on the bench for multiple seasons. All reports from his high school All Star camps indicate he was a man among boys.

The rest of the group is full of potential starters, a couple of whom could find their way into the starting lineup this season. Luke Matthews and Tank Jenkins are jockeying for the right guard spot vacated by Keaton Sutherland, and even Green may find his way in there if one of the two starting tackles from last year could move inside.

Colten Blanton and Barton Clement need some time to develop but are candidates to start as early as next year depending on how many juniors declare for the draft.
