• The biggest news of Coach Snyder’s first press conference and
depth chart of the season is that none of the four JUCO transfers
who arrived for fall camp (D’Vonta Derricott, Terrell Clinkscales,
A.J. Allen and Isaiah Riddle) are on the depth chart. Clinkscales
apparently is behind six other defensive tackles that are listed.
Snyder did say it’s likely that some of those guys will get on the
field during the game Saturday.
• Two of the three Blue Springs (MO) freshmen are second-string
on the depth chart in safety Kaleb Prewett and linebacker Elijah
Lee. Running back Dalvin Warmack isn’t and Coach Snyder said as
of right now he will “probably” redshirt.
• One surprise is sophomore defensive end Jordan Willis starting
at defensive end. Marquel Bryant was the assumed incumbent at
the defensive end spot opposite of Ryan Mueller.
• Also Joe Hubener beat out Jesse Ertz for the backup quarterback
role. Hubener is also now on scholarship according to Snyder.
• The right side of the offensive line right now remains Drew Liddle
at guard and Matt Kleinsorge at tackle. The backups are Luke
Hayes and Aaron Bennett.
• Charles Jones is listed as the starter at running back, but Snyder
said that it’s still subject to change in the next few days.
• Finally, Morgan Burns and Danzel McDaniel won the starting
cornerback spots with Cre Moore and Nate Jackson behind them.
