FOOTBALL: Early depth chart notes

Some new names appearing on a 2-deep for the first time. 2nd team OL – LG Brandon Green, a juco transfer last season, RG Mark Jean-Louis, a juco transfer two years ago with little experience, LT Alex Washington, RT Logan Clair, a mid-year juco transfer.

Other depth chart notes. Brandon Bolden begins spring ahead of Cordera Eason at tailback. Dexter McCluster, who was either starting or playing a great deal at tailback at the end of last season, is listed No. 1 at flanker ahead of Lionel Breaux. Andy Hartmann is listed No. 1 at fullback ahead of Derrick Davis.

On defense, Greg Hardy is listed third at end. He’ll miss the spring anyway, recovering from offseason foot surgery. Marshay Green and Cassius Vaughn are listed No. 1 at the cornerbacks with sophomore Marcus Temple backing up Vaughn and junior Jeremy McGee behind Green. Remember, Ohio State transfer James Scott has been dismissed.

Some promising redshirt freshmen to watch are Gerald Rivers, listed No. 2 at one end behind Kentrell Lockett, Lekenwic Haynes, No. 2 behind Allen Walker at strong linebacker and Jason Jones, No. 2 behind Jonahthan Cornell at middle linebacker. These three guys were head-turners in practice last year as true freshmen.

Other redshirt freshmen to watch are safeties Derrick Herman (SS) and Jared Mitchell (FS) both listed second team.

    PA, did he mention anything about Rishaw Johnson. I had been hearing that he was looking more impressive than Alex Washington. I know Washington is a Tackle and Johnson a Guard. I’m assuming we are just deeper at guard this year than tackle.

    PA – Why was James Scott dismissed? Boy, I must really be in the dark.

  6. Charles Says:

    My bad PA, I see that they have Rishaw projecte as a starter. If you get the chance to speak with Decker or any of the coaches, it would be interesting to know what kind of training Greg Hardy has been able to do while rehabbing.

    My concern is that he isn’t able to do power cleans and squats which really help build that exposiveness. I’m worried he will lose a lot of lower body strength and maybe some quickness. Wonder what they’ve been doing to prevent that.
