It makes no sense to me. The guy has never played C before and comes from Colorado Pueblo which is about the weeniest D2 school there is (I played baseball with guys over the summer who'd gone there).
Weeniest? Program went from no football from 1985 until 2008 to D2's #1 ranked team the past two years by the end of each of their regular seasons. That is not just in their Super Region, but nationally.
As I posted earlier, the guy played nothing but center on the O-Line until he hit college. He was moved outside because they didn't want to waste his athleticism, speed, and outright nastiness.
He played both ways his senior year of HS (DE and C) and was named All-State for DE as well as for the O-line. Hell, he even long-snapped and punted when needed (of course not at the same time! LOL)
He finished in the top 5 voting for the Gene Upshaw award his senior year in College, which recognizes the top Offensive or Defensive lineman in D2.
The CSU-P team he just left took University of Northern Colorado D1AA school to the woodshed two weeks ago. This kid came from anything but a weeniest school and football program.
Another thing to consider is he only had one day @ TC before his injury....and he impressed enough for Harbs and Oz to keep him on the active roster. They did their homework on the kid, and liked what they saw it OTA's and Mini-Camp....and I think that is saying something.
