Salt (6-foot-2, 325 pounds) is transitioning from defensive tackle, where he was expected to play after transferring from Mt. San Antonio. He also missed the 2012 campaign because of a broken foot. Hopefully that won’t dampen his 4.98 40 speed.
Salt was a 2011 first-team All-America Community College Football team offensive guard at Mt. San Antonio and Rivals’ 10th-rated junior college prospect in 2012 as a defensive tackle. He is also a returned Latter-day Saint missionary. But perhaps his greatest notoriety is that he had an acting role in the 2008 rugby-themed film “Forever Strong.” He played rugby for Highland High, where he graduated in 2005.
Whittingham is excited to see Salt in game action.
