There are not too many surprises on the Louisville post-spring depth chart, but some definite highlights.
Here are a few:
Here are a few:
- Running back. While Dominique Brown is listed on the top line, there is no clear-cut No. 1 at the position. Brown and Jeremy Wright appear to be the front-runners, with Senorise Perry close behind. Corvin Lamb, who had a good spring, also will get playing time. Bottom line: expect all four to play this fall.
- Receiver. Scott Radcliff appears ahead of Eli Rogers at the H-receiver spot, thanks to his terrific spring. The former walk-on has worked his way up the depth chart, thanks in part to his sure hands. In the spring game, he played with the first team and led all receivers with nine catches for 119 yards. Michaelee Harris and DeVante Parker are the other first-team receivers.
- Nate Nord is penciled in as the starter at tight end, replacing the departed Josh Chichester.
- There are not too many surprises on defense. Two of the most highly heralded early enrollees at linebacker, James Burgess and Keith Brown, are sure to see playing time this season. Burgess is listed second behind Daniel Brown on the weak side, while Keith Brown is listed behind Preston Brown in the middle. Try to keep track of all those Browns during the season!
- One notable player not on the depth chart is safety Gerod Holliman, who missed the spring with a shoulder injury. Holliman enrolled in January but since he was out during practice, he isn't listed.
- John Wallace is listed as the starting kicker in place of Chris Philpott. Wallace is a redshirt freshman and the backup punter to Ryan Johnson.
- Another name to watch is Dominique Dishman, a redshirt freshman listed behind Roy Philon at defensive tackle.
