Key Coogs: #13 Rowdy Harper
We continue our pre-camp coverage today and continue our Key Coogs series that takes a look at the top 25 key players for the Cougars whose performance will effect the team's success in the upcoming season.
The Key Coogs, which is sponsored by Chastang Ford, continues as we approach the two week mark until the start of the Cougars' pre-season camp with a look at junior left tackle Rowdy Harper.
Although Harper is only going to be a junior, it seems like he has been around for a while on the Cougars offensive line. He redshirted his first season on campus and immediately stepped into the starting right tackle position in 2011.
In 2012 Harper made the move from the right side to the left side, teaming up with left guard mainstay Ty Cloud to form a solid left side of the Cougars' offensive line.
After being selected as a Freshman All-American in 2011, Harper has settled into his new role on the left side as has been named to several preseason All-Conference lists by multiple publications.
With a solid frame, at 6-foot-6 and just shy of 300 pounds, Harper could easily translate a solid junior season into an attention grabber for NFL scouts looking to identify who they will focus on the following season.
