Arkansas’ Frank Ragnow is expected to be one of the SEC’s top returning linemen in 2017. And his inclusion on the Rimington Trophy watch list only confirms that.
The award, which is handed out annually to college football’s best center, named Ragnow as a player to watch entering the summer when it released its early watch list on Monday.

Ragnow’s final season with the Razorbacks is set up to be a special one as the Hogs big man attempts to pay tribute to his father, who passed away tragically during last football season.
SEC Country’s Jason Kersey recently visited with Ragnow in a feature story that is a must-read for Arkansas fans and foes alike.
A great read about a great man and family. #WoooPig
Thanks to @jasonkersey for the time and effort.

Ragnow was a second-team All-SEC selection after his junior year and was considered a candidate to leave the league early to pursue the NFL.
He has made 26 straight starts heading into his senior campaign with 14 starts at right guard and 12 at center.
