Only Brynjar Gudmundsson Days Until USF Football

USF's best-named player is in his final season.

#66 OG Brynjar Gudmundsson
Redshirt Senior, 6'4", 305 lbs.

Stats in 2014: Brynjar was a renaissance man of sorts along USF's offensive line, starting nine games at right tackle, two at right guard, and one at left guard. If you're counting, he started all of the Bulls' 12 games.

Spot on Spring Depth Chart: Gudmundsson was listed as the starter at right guard, ahead of Dominique Threatt.

How He Came to USF: From Wellington High School near Palm Beach. He picked USF over offers from UCF, FIU and Marshall.

Recruiting Rankings: All the major recruiting services had Brynjar listed as a two-star recruit.

Projected Playing Time: There's no denying that Gudmundsson struggled last season, as did the majority of the USF offensive line. Still, it appears likely that he'll win the job at right guard and be a full-time starter in his final season in a Bulls uniform (he really just has to beat out Threatt, who didn't do much to secure the position when given the opportunity last season). With new faces likely coming in at tackle as Brynjar moves inside, there's hope for an improved product.

At any rate, this is the last season in which we'll ever see a lineman named Brynjar Gudmundsson play football, and that is something to be mourned.

Fun Fact: Brynjar has two siblings named... Joel and Alexandra. Where did his parents come up with Brynjar?
