The Aggies will look at possibly starting Mike Grady at center this week when the team travels to take on Minnesota.
Head coach DeWayne Walker said the Aggies will also look into getting playing time for true freshman Valerian Ume-Ezeoke this week.
Last week the Aggie offensive line struggled against Ohio and the truth is that no one played particularly well. Fakalata didn’t look comfortable at center, having a hard time with shotgun snaps and getting beat inside.
I believe the right move is starting Fakalata at guard and Grady at center. That’s Fakalata’s natural position and he should be the Aggies best offensive lineman there.
Grady is a smart player and experienced. He has started at center the past three seasons at NMSU.
Both are proven players at those respective positions.
I still think the offensive line can be good if these moves work out.
