There’s no way around it, the Hogs need help on the offensive line. They need both developmental projects who can provide depth and instant impact guys. The Hogs look to have the former in newest signee Brady Latham.
The three star doesn’t have an offer list that jumps out at you, but was getting interest from Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Texas Tech at the time of his commitment. 247Sports ranks Latham as the 12th best player in the state of Oklahoma. He also looks to be good friends with recent Arkansas commit Ricky Stromberg, who is also from the Tulsa area.
He’s one of the lower ranked recruits in this class so expecting an instant impact shouldn’t be the case. Despite that he’s still a piece that the Hogs need. Offensive line depth was a huge issue for the Hogs in 2018 so just having more guys on scholarship that can come in both during games and in practice will be a step forward in 2019.
