Welcome to the 70s! Time to get to my favorite group on the roster, the offensive lineman.
#79 OG Chaz Hine
5th Yr. Senior, 6'4" 296 lbs
Stats in 2010: Chaz started all 13 games last year at right guard.
Current Spot on Depth Chart: No surprise, Chaz is entrenched as the starter at right guard.
He's also a lead-pipe cinch to win the team talent contest, what with these pipes:
How did he come to USF: Hine came to USF via Newsome High School in Lithia, FL as a preferred walk-on over scholarships at FCS schools.
Recruiting Rankings: Hine was not given a grade by either Rivals or Scout.
Projected Playing Time for 2011: With Sampson Genus, Jamar Bass, and Jacob Sims gone, Chaz will be the leader of a revamped offensive line. Hine has blossomed since arriving in 2007, and 2011 will be his 3rd season as a starter for the Green and Gold. Hine should be up to the challenge, and we expect big things from #79 this year.
