The Sun Devils have suffered a significant loss to their offensive line, as starting right tackle Emmit Bohle is out for the season with a leg injury, ASU coach Kenny Dillingham said today.

Bohle, a graduate student, was carted off the field in the first quarter of ASU’s 27-15 loss to Oklahoma State. Junior Max Iheanachor, listed at 6-foot-6, 320 pounds, entered in relief for Bohle and had a pretty good showing. This was Iheanachor’s first appearance for the Sun Devils after transferring from a JUCO (East Los Angeles College) this offseason.

The 6-foot-7, 320-pound Bohle, this season’s biggest offensive lineman on the team, transferred to ASU from Division II Northern State prior to last season. At Northern State, Bohle converted from tight end to offensive tackle after arriving on campus and added 60 pounds onto his frame. He started every game across two years at left tackle for the Wolves.

Last season with ASU, Bohle played in all 12 games, logging seven starts.

Other offensive line injuries

After playing Week One, starting left tackle Isaia Glass did not suit up for last week’s game against OSU. Key reserve offensive lineman Cade Briggs also was not dressed. Ben Coleman, a Cal transfer, sustained a leg injury before he got to Tempe and is also not expected to play the majority of this season. Coleman most likely would have started at one of the guard spots.

Aaron Frost, a transfer from Nevada who is recovering from a torn ACL, has not been fully healthy to play yet for ASU. Frost has been listed as the backup left guard on the team’s depth chart. Starting right guard Joey Ramos has been playing with a club on his hand.

“Obviously that position has been decimated with injuries, unfortunately,” Dillingham said. “Some contact, some non-contact, some running in the offseason. Emmit’s going to be out for the season, unfortunate for him. What a great person, what a great worker, what he did with his body this offseason and getting into shape was incredible. I’m sure, you guys were there at practice, the strides he made were awesome.

“Ben Coleman is out as well, but (Glass, Briggs and Frost) are questionable. And we’ll see how it goes as the season, or as this game progresses, but that’s obviously a challenge. And we got to find ways to adapt and change what we do offensively to put our guys in the best situations to succeed again. So, that may be a little bit different-looking offense than I’ve done in the past, just to utilize our players to the best of their ability.”

Losing Bohle is a major blow for ASU and for Bohle in his final season with the Sun Devils.
