2018 Mountain West Football 50 Best Players: #23, Utah State C Quin Ficklin
The Utah State center is the highest-ranked interior offensive lineman on this year’s list of Mountain West football’s top 50 players.
Ficklin and company will be tough to get past this fall.
Mountain West Wire’s countdown of the 50 best football players in the conference turns to Logan for the first time, as Utah State center Quin Ficklin is #23 on our list.
Ficklin’s first year as a starter was a pretty good one, as the Aggies offense improved over the course of 2017. He started all thirteen games for a running attack that averaged 5.4 yards per carry in four of its last six matchups (not to mention eight yards per carry in two of those games) and allowed a sack on just 3% of dropbacks once Jordan Love took over at quarterback.
Now, he’ll anchor the most experienced offensive line in the conference for a team that’s a trendy pick to contend for the Mountain West crown.
