Not many of us thought that offensive tackle Joe Alt would made a contribution to the team for a few years. The converted tight end from Minnesota was looked at as more of a project, but that wasn’t how it turned out to be.

After an injury to fellow classmate Blake Fisher, Alt was thrown to the wolves, but he didn’t act like a pup. Actually, once Alt was added to the starting offensive line, the run game looked like last years and the offense took off.

Already garnering multiple Freshman All-American honors, Alt received yet another one today, as he was named to the Football Writers Association of America Freshman All-American first-team.

A very bright future for Alt and the Irish offensive line over at minimum the next two seasons.
