Skip Holtz Likes Oddly Named Offensive Lineman

With the addition of Georgia OL Kofi Amichia to the Class of 2012, I've come to the realization that South Florida Bulls Head Coach Skip Holtz likes to have his offensive lineman to have the oddest names possible.


In the three recruiting classes that Skip has been a part of, USF fans have been introduced to etymological nightmares like Quinterrius Eatmon, Thor Joswiak, Boo Simon, and Brynjar Gudmundsson. Even walk-on lineman Mak "The Bosnian War Hammer" Djulbegovic has a name that would make most people tongue-tied just by looking at it.


Sure Holtz has normal OL recruits with normal names like Max Lang  and walk-on Jake Smith, but don't let that fool you. Skip is just going up and down the Rivals database and blindly offering the best names that he sees. Why do you think USF grabbed linebackers Edsel Caprice and Hans Louis and has a commitment from Plant City WR LaMarlin Wiggins?
