The Kansas State Wildcats added stalwart JUCO lineman Justin Eichman to their roster, according to a post from Eichman’s Twitter account.

West Virginia, Colorado, and Arizona also recruited Eichman. He will have three years of eligibility with the Wildcats.
Kansas State has not historically recruited well, but that hasn’t mattered to Bill Snyder. Snyder’s Wildcats have overachieved consistently as opposed to their recruiting rankings over the years.
Eichman is a staggering 6’9, 350 pounds, according to his bio from Butler CC. With that size, he can make an instant impact at tackle if needed, or redshirt to holster his eligibility.
With Eichman’s frame, it’s hard to see him standing on the sidelines for long. He has incredible height and the perfect frame for a D1 tackle. It will be interesting to see where Eichman fits in to the Wildcats’ rotation in 2018.
