There aren’t any big surprises here but there’s a couple of things to note:
- The running back position is deep and the depth chart shows it. The position lists senior Jojo Kemp or junior Boom Williams as the starter.
- There’s a similar case at one of the receiver positions. One spot lists junior Dorian Baker or redshirt freshman Tavin Richardson as the starter.
- Ten freshmen are listed in the two deep depth chart including co-No. 1 punter Grant McKinniss (with sophomore Bryan Kirche) and co-No. 1 Eli Brown (with sophomore Jordan Jones) at weak side linebacker. The others, all backups, include Lexington’s Landon Young at left tackle and MLB Kash Daniel.
