Utah State football: Aggies dismiss starting guard Tyshon Mosley

The Aggies lose a key piece to their offensive line for the 2016 season.

The offseason has struck Utah State as the school has announced that starting guard Tyshon Mosley has been removed from the football program.

The reason came down to the vague violation of team rules, but it should be noted that Mosley was suspended for the first two games of Utah State's season last year along with three other Aggie players. Perhaps he was given another chance and unfortunately he did not take full advantage of that opportunity.

Mosley was an honorable mention all-conference guard last year in the Mountain West and was expected to be one of the best guards in the league as well.

This is a big loss as Mosley was not just going to be one of the league's best but he was to be a three-year starter with 20 career starts. A few players who could take over the starting left guard position might be center Jarom Ioane or right guard K.J. Uluave, but neither has a career start to their credit.

The offensive line was to be a big strength for Utah State because with Mosley they would have returned four of their five starting lineman with 90 career starts. That number dips to 70 so instead of this line being possibly the best in the conference to now a solid above average offensive line.
