A clue has finally emerged in the mystery over the inability of Aaron Douglas, the former Freshman All-American JUCO transfer that we all expected to waltz in and take over at LT, to crack the starting offensive line. Courtesy his Twitter account:
He goes on to say that the surgery was to remove bone spurs, and that recovery time is about 6-8 weeks. That certainly goes a long way towards explaining why Douglas never sniffed the starting offensive line, instead yielding to Alfred McCullough and Barrett Jones the whole spring. Depending on his recovery time and ability to participate in summer conditioning, Douglas still has a shot at showing why we took a risk on him in the first place.
