Culbertson will reprise his role as starting snapper on placekicking units.

Ryland Culbertson
RS senior
6'4'' / 278 lbs
Laurens, S.C.

Recruitment:
Culbertson was not heavily recruited out of high school. He joined Carolina as a walk-on in 2010.

College Career:
From 2010 to 2012, Culbertson served as a reserve long-snapper and offensive linemen. This past season, he took over the snapping duties on field goals and extra points and acquitted himself well as part of a unit that combined for 54 of 55 on XPA and 15 of 18 on FGA.

2014 Outlook:
Culbertson is slated to reprise his role as the snapper on the placekicking units.

Trivia:
Ryland Culbertson is on Pinterest. Looks like he has great taste in food. I'm definitely making that crockpot breakfast casserole one Saturday this fall.

Beat writer's terrible double-meaning lede:
"The name 'Ryland' comes from the Gaelic for 'island meadow,' and that's exactly what Ryland Culbertson's snaps were like Satuday: crisp as a cool breeze in an island meadow."
