Collin Rahrig heading to Pittsburgh #iufb

Collin Rahrig is heading to Pittsburgh.

Rahrig told The Herald-Times in a text message Saturday that he signed a free agent contract with the Steelers, becoming the third Hoosier to find a professional home. The South Bend native started 36 of the 40 career games he played at Indiana, making 19 of those starts at center, 12 at left guard and five at right guard. As a senior, Rahrig was named a All-Big Ten honorable mention selection by both coaches and meida. He was also a nominee for the Rimington and Burlsworth trophies.

Rahrig started the first six games of last season before moving to left guard for the final six. NFL teams like him at center in a zone blocking scheme, which the Steelers have used since 2013. He was second among Indiana linemen with 56 knockdowns last season.
