Our tour of offensive linesmen continues today with another redshirt sophomore who may be one of the biggest players on the team. He comes to us as a walk-on, but at one time starting left tackle Dennis Kelly was a walk-on. So was Nick Hardwick, who is now a Pro Bowler out in San Diego.
Connor Snapp - So. (RS)
Hometown: Valparaiso, IN (Valparaiso HS)
6'7, 321 pounds
2011 Projection: Offensive line reserve
Connor was a walk-on from Robbie Hummel High in Valparaiso. He redshirted in 2009 after lettering for three years at Valparaiso. He was given preferred walk-on status, which I understand is an agreement for a spot on the team, but he had to pay his own way. The Northwest Indiana time had a great profile on him two summers ago after he received his late offer from Purdue.
I do like this kid's size. You can't teach 6'7" 320 pounds, so I think there is the potential he could be a regular contributor if he continues to work hard. As the profile stated, he had to work hard just to be a starter in high school after moving to Indiana from Colorado.
