Simultaneously blessed and cursed by a raging metabolism, right tackle Torian White has figured out how to keep his weight on after dropping down to 265 over the course of the 2012 season.
Now hovering around a heftier 295, the 6-foot-5 redshirt sophomore has looked entrenched as a starter on the offensive line.
“I feel more technically sound than I was last year,” White said. “There’s certain things I know to look out for. Certain ways that a defender’s lined up that will help me technique-wise, when it comes to setting a certain way.”
He also agreed with the common assessment on both sides of the ball that the offensive line is communicating better. White added that the unit being more in sync as actually resulted in less verbal communication.
