Football Depth Chart--Spartan Version

BG released its new depth chart for the MSU game...nothing major changed, but we're not just about major changes.  We're about all changes.  Major.  Minor.  You get the idea.

So here they are:

On the o-line, rFR Caleb Bright started fall practice at RG1, and now he is at RG2 and C2.  Jack Kramer has moved back into the starting role at RG.  The RT2 was Joe Ware at the beginning of Fall, but now rJR John Kurtz is in that spot.  Coach has said he only really has a lot of confidence in the top 7 guys, which I would assume is the 5 starters, Bright and Clancy.

At QB, Jarrett Doege is now an "OR" with Grant Loy.  I think it's pretty clear.  If mop up is needed in a blowout, it will be Loy, but if Morgan goes down Doege is going in.

At WR, the starters are the same....Guyton, Miller and Redding.  Phoutavong and Pough also remain as backups, and the only change is that Mike Wilcox moved onto a 2-line ahead of Jared Wyatt.

RB stayed the same....Wilson and Cleveland, though Domer and Clair could also get carries in E. Lansing Saturday.

On defense, the d-line remained exactly the same, as did the starting LBs.  Amari Posey held the OLB2 line, but in the middle Jerry Judd was beaten out by true FR Kohlbe Coleman-Abrams, who has forced the redshirt right off his body.  On the other OLB spot, Jack Walz II has returned from injury and into a backup role behind Aaron Banks, replacing Niljah Ballew.

In the backfield, there has been shuffling due to the injury to Jamari Bozeman.  Jeffries and Jackson remain the starters.  Montre Gregory has moved up to a #2 to replace Clint Stephens and true FR Darius Wortham has moved up to the other backup to replace Marcus Milton, who is now playing S.

At S, JUCO Fred Garth remains a starter, and Tavarous Wade has moved into the FS1 position from the FS2 spot.  Milton and rFR Torrain Hampton are now backup S, with Ben Hale moving off the chart.  Nonetheless, Coach indicated that S is wide open and a bunch of guys will get time there Saturday and then next steps will be determined.

Suder and Davidson remain in their spots.  Nick Fields will still KO.  Gabe Skrobot will long snap.  For KR, we are expecting to see Wilcox and Clair, two true FR.  Milton and Wilcox are listed as PR.
