Justin David Eichman (b. Nov. 24, 1997) was a late walk-on addition to the offensive line who did not see any game action in 2018 after transferring in from the community college ranks.

A two-year letter-winner under head coach Bill Arnold at Hayden High School in Topeka, he played the 2017 season at Butler Community College under head coach Tim Schaffner.

Eichman started at right tackle for the Grizzlies, helping them to earn an 8-3 record and average 182.8 rushing yards per game in 2017 after redshirting during the 2016 season.

At Butler, he played with current Wildcats Chris Dugan, Noah Johnson, Luke Sowa and Ty Zentner. Eichman will have two seasons to play two due his redshirt and year sitting out.
