The year's first depth chart is out and the biggest surprise has to be that Dave Shinskie will be starting at QB. Just kidding. Definitely the biggest news on the chart is that Andre Williams will be playing and of course is listed as the starter at running back. Woohoo, let's not jump off the bridge yet. On the other hand Nathan Richman is out, and the magical carousel of offensive linemen will continue.
Secondly, Hampton Hughes will be starting at safety. Yes, the same Hampton Hughes who was just converted to the position less than a month ago. Playing against two all Big Ten WR's and Dan Persa. Suffice it to say, I am a little worried about the pass defense on Saturday. That being said, Donnie Fletcher -- who was held out of the scrimmage -- is back on the depth charge which is huge for the Eagles.
Also on the defensive end of the ball Steele Divitto ended up beating out Nick Clancy for the start SLB. Kaleb Ramsey will be ready to go after getting dinged up in fall practices. Also there are a ton of freshman and redshirted freshman set to play on defense. Spaz must be happy with some of his recent recruits progress to put them up there.
Also the wide receiver depth chart is different than usual. Last year, Tranquill would have a FB listed and two WR's on his depth chart. This year Kevin Rogers has three wide receivers listed as starters and no full back. Very strange. Will he be incorporating more 3 WR sets or dare I say some spread offense? This may just be a foreshadow into an offensive gameplan that is very foreign to BC fans who have watched the team recently.
Full depth chart after the jump.
