I think every offensive linemen in this class will probably red shirt. As said before, he will be looked at to play Center probably (either him or Dodd). I guess it's possible if one of them develops quickly at center that they won't RS, but I think Trai Turner will be cross-trained at center to provide depth since we'll be returning 3 starting guards.

The only reason Malone would play some next year is if Porter got hurt on an extended basis and we just simply couldnt find a cross-trained replacement for the long run.
Ben Domingue will be the "Backup" OC next year...one of our best walk ons FWIW. Basically a guy who could come in and play a few snaps if Porter got banged up and in blowouts finish out games. He played in 5 games last year and 3 games this year. So he has some limited experience. He is by no means a long term option though if it came down to that.
