VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -   After graduating so many offensive linemen in the last two years, Valdosta State head coach David Dean says that position has been a priority on the recruiting trail.

The Blazers have re-loaded on the offensive line with the 37 players they signed on Wednesday.

Counting mid-year transfers, 22 of the 43 new Blazers are offensive or defensive linemen.

Blazer fans know depth at quarterback is thin and VSU did sign three.

Coach Dean is thinking long term and he believes the trenches are in good shape.

David Dean said. "If we come in and live up to the expectations that we think they can, we should have a good offensive line for the next three or four years with those guys being able to play together."

Valdosta State also has six mid-year transfer players.

Among them is former Georgia defensive back Donovan Baldwin.
