For most of fall camp Coach Drinkwitz has been super cagey about sharing any info about who the starting quarterback was going to be in game one, let alone the rest of the roster.
Today, he felt like sharing.
BEHOLD! THE FIRST DEPTH CHART IS UPON US!
As per Dave Matter, here’s the full “OR”d out depth chart:
Connor Bazelak OR Shawn Robinson
Larry Rountree III OR Tyler Badie
Damon Hazelton, Keke Chism, Jalen Knox
Daniel Parker OR Niko Hea OR Logan Christopherson
Zeke Powell OR Bobby Lawrence
Chris Turner OR Isaiah McGuire
Jarvis Ware, Ennis Rakestraw
Joshuah Bledsoe, Tyree Gillespie, Martez Manuel
Tyler Badie, Kris Abrams-Draine
My brief takeaways:
- Hell yes, Ennis Rakestraw
- Zeke Powell starting? Yikes.
- DPJ must still be injured
If you’re savvy on your social media, you’ll notice several of the guys listed here who are definitely not playing on Saturday due to quarantine but that’s not the point. This whole season will be a musical chairs of names and positions on the chart just to field enough dudes to play, so “official” depth charts are about as useful as a poopy-flavored lollipop. But at least we have an idea of who the Drinkwitz crew wants to field and now we get to see how these guys perform against one of the best teams, and coaches, in the entire history of college football.
