Spring football is underway for Oklahoma State, and one of the biggest questions heading into the 2017 season is on the offensive line.
The Cowboys have a glaring hole at left tackle after the graduation of two-year starter Viktor Salako. They could find his replacement in a graduate transfer.
Cal left tackle grad transfer Aaron Cochran says he’s down to three schools: Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and Auburn.— Jake Trotter (@Jake_Trotter) March 23, 2017
Former University of Cal-Berkley tackle Aaron Cochran made a visit to Oklahoma State three weeks ago. He is expected to visit Auburn this weekend, then Texas Tech the weekend of April 8th. According to Trotter, Cochran will make his decision after that.
The 6-8, 350 lb lineman had 16 starts in the 28 games he played in at Cal, including 10 starts last season at left tackle.
Right now, it’s expected that Senior Shane Richards and Junior Arlington Hambright will battle for the starting spot. Behind them are two redshirt freshmen, Dylan Galloway and Teven Jenkins.
If Cochran chooses the Cowboys, he’s likely to take the starting left tackle spot. It would be huge get for a Cowboy team vying for a Big 12 title this season.
