Depth chart notes: North Division

8/31/2011

Some quick notes on depth charts, which were released this week. Here we do the North Division. See the South Division here.

California: The biggest surprise is walk-on Dan Camporeale prevailing at one of the OLB spots over Ryan Davis, Chris McCain and Cecil Whiteside, the latter not making the two-deep. ... Backups at the other three LB posts have changed: McCain is David Wilkerson's backup for the other OLB spot. Juniors Robert Mullins and J.P. Hurrell are backups inside. ... True freshman Stefan McClure earned a backup CB spot behind Marc Anthony. ... Allan Bridgford won the backup QB job over Brock Mansion. ... The backup guards, Chris Adcock and Justin Gates, are different than the post-spring depth chart (Alejandro Crosthwaite and Geoffrey Gibson). ... With Eric Stevens injured, Will Kapp is No. 1 at FB.

Oregon: Not many surprises. Terrance Mitchell will replace the suspended Cliff Harris against LSU. ... Dewitt Stuckey starts at MLB for Kiko Alonso, who appears to be suspended but his status hasn't been officially confirmed. ... DE Dion Jordan is now listed as an "Or" with Brandon Hanna instead of Terrell Turner. ... True freshman IfoEkpre-Olomuis a backup CB behind Anthony Gildon. ... Hroniss Grasu won the starting job at center over Karrington Armstrong and Ramsen Golpashin won the starting RG job over Nick Cody.

Oregon State: Lots of uncertainty here due to injuries and the "official" depth chart for the Sacramento State game doesn't include the latest lineup updates. ... Two true freshmen will start on offense: WR Brandin Cooks and RB Malcolm Agnew. ... Colin Kelly has beaten out Michael Philipp at right tackle. ... The starting DTs likely will be Castro Masaniai and Andrew Seumalo, not Kevin Frahm and Dominic Glover, as they will be when the Beavers are at full strength. ... Redshirt freshman Scott Crichton won the job at right DE. ... Feti Unga won the MLB spot over Tony Wilson and Rueben Robinson, who moved to "Sam" LB. ... Sophomore Rashad Reynolds will start for the injured Brandon Hardin.

Stanford: The three voids on the offensive line will be filled like this: David Yankey at LG, Sam Schwartzstein at C and Cameron Fleming at RT. Kevin Danser was ill late in camp, but he could come back and challenge at LG. ... There's an "Or" between Brett Nottingham and Robbi Picazo at backup QB. ... Henry Anderson is a backup DE instead of NG as he was after spring. Redshirt freshman David Parry is the backup at NG. ... Three true freshmen made the depth chart on defense: LB James Vaughters, CB Wayne Lyons and FS Jordan Richards.

Washington: WR James Johnson, who had a sophomore slump, is listed as one of three starting WR. There's an "Or" between Devin Aguilar and Kevin Smith at one WR. ... True freshmen TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins has an "Or" between him and redshirt freshman Michael Hartvigson. ... True freshman WR is Jermaine Kearse's backup. ... Senior Everette Thompson is listed No. 1 at DT instead of at DE, where Talia Crichton is starting. ... True freshman Danny Shelton is DT Alameda Ta'amu's backup. ... Redshirt freshman Josh Shirley is listed as a backup DE instead of a "rush" LB, as he was after spring practices. ... John Timu and Princeton Fuimaono are the starting OLBs. ... Sean Parker is the No. 1 strong safety. ... There's an "Or" between punters Kiel Rasp and Will Mahan.

Washington State: There's an "Or" between senior Marshall Lobbestael and redshirt freshman Connor Halliday at backup QB. ... Redshirt freshman Jake Rodgers is the backup RT. ... Former D-lineman Dan Spitz is the backup LT. ... Adam Coerper won the job at DE opposite Travis Long. His backup is former TE Skyler Stormo. ... C.J. Mizell beat out Mike Ledgerwood at MLB. ... LB Chester Su'a and CB Spencer Waseem are the only two true freshmen on the two-deep. ... There's an "Or" between Daniel Simmons and Nolan Washington at left CB.
