The KU football offensive line is considered by many a question mark for the 2020 season.

The Jayhawks have some returning talent on the line, but it mostly comes from the interior. In fact, every tackle start made in the 2019 season, Les Miles’ first as KU coach, is gone, and the Jayhawks are also down potential starting tackle Antione Frazier, who Miles said chose to opt out of the season and subsequently landed in the transfer portal.

Looking at that depth, KU returns interior O-linemen in Malik Clark (12 appearances in 2019, 11 starts) Chris Hughes (12 appearances, eight starts), Adagio Lopeti (12 appearances, four starts) Api Mane (12 appearances, two starts) and Jacobi Lott (seven appearances, one start).

At tackle, Earl Bostick (four appearances in 2019) has been a name mentioned by KU coaches and players, and Nick Williams will likely get his shot to provide depth to the unit.

Miles, for the record, has asserted he believes the 2020 line could actually be better than the 2019 line despite losing sixth-round NFL Draft selection Hakeem Adeniji, who started 48 games for the Jayhawks over his four seasons in Lawrence.
