Hmm. Pooka Williams was suspended from the Kansas football team in early December for domestic battery charge.

Take a look at the size disparities between the G5/P5 interior lineman on this list.

That is a big reason why voters probably should be even tougher on these G5 teams in polls than they are. The depth and size up front is insane. As good as Noah Hannon is for us, and I believe he has to be the best G5 center in the country for 2019, he could not make the two-deep at a Clemson, Oklahoma, NC State, Alabama, Georgia, FSU, etc because being 6'1 280 or so is just not big enough to hold up in those leagues. Very few G5 schools have linemen that can compare and usually it is just a couple on offense and maybe 1 on defense who can.

Nice for Clayton Howell and App to get the national recognition. He certainly improved our punt team efficiency a great deal this year.
