Cermin is the fifth of Danny hope's big offensive line commits that needs to produce in 2014.

In the countdown we have been on a run of offensive lineman, and today is the last of the five freshmen that Danny Hope brought in during his final full recruiting class. He has been on campus for two years now and is ready to have a larger role in protecting Danny Etling.

Offensive Line

2014 Projection Possible starter at offensive line

The disaster that was the 2013 offensive line appears to be taking shape. Robert Kugler is a definite starter in the middle and it looks like Jordan Roos and Jason King will have the guard spots next to him. The tackle positions are up for grabs with a pair of JuCo transfers that could see time at one tackle spot and at guard.

As of now, Cermin is mostly a guard, and is listed as backing up Roos. As we know, however, injuries can cause havoc and Cermin must be ready if needed. He has the size to be a difference maker, at least. He grew up in the shadow of Texas A&M, just as Jack DeBoef grew up in State College, PA in the shadow of Penn State. Cermin comes out of his redshirt year at a solid 6'5" 300 pounds and projects as more of an interior lineman. He was a three-star commitment that blocked on a line that averaged over 400 yards rushing per game as a junior. He was an all-District selection in Texas and an Academic All-State.
