AT A GLANCE

The hiring of Ed Orgeron solidified Deculus’ shaky commitment after Les Miles was fired. Deculus, a mid-year enrollee who has family ties in Louisiana, has a massive frame and could provide immediate depth at either tackle spot behind Toby Weathersby and K.J. Malone.

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING

“Deculus is one that passes the eye test immediately. He has that big chest, he has that country-boy strength and he flashes that on the football field. He loves to drive defenders off the ball and then put them on the ground.” — Scout.com’s Chad Simmons
