Remember that this string focuses on reasons for Eno Benjamin to come back next year.

Therefore, I ask the same question I asked Xdevil. Do you see -
Henderson/Transfer, Bell/Shear, Cote, West, Henderson/Transfer -

as an immediate upgrade from -

Keep in mind that most transfers are players that could not start at their original schools. Shear is a good example. After a couple years at Oregon he was still a practice squad player. In the past, ASU has been fortunate to welcome linemen that wanted to return to Arizona. I do not see that good fortune repeating in the immediate future.

Also, Cote is one of the strongest players on the team, but he does not seem to have the quickness to play center. My guess is that he plays OG if West can master the snaps. If I were Eno and saw the possibility of Shear, West and Cote in the middle, my first impression would be that the line would remain small in the running lanes and there would be no advantage to return for another year of opening my own holes.
