Minor Changes in Latest WVU Football Depth Chart

Posted:
MORGANTOWN -

Tuesday evening will mark the WVU football team's 10th practice of the spring and along with it comes an updated depth chart based on the progress of the previous nine days of drills.

While there are not necessarily surprises in the depth chart, there are a few changes worth noting, especially including some position switches and some freshmen who are clearly making an impact.

Both the offense and defense list five freshmen -- redshirt and true -- at a variety of positions.

Jordan Thompson remains at the second string H receiver behind J.D. Woods, while fellow true freshmen Imarjaye Albury (NT) and Karl Joseph (SS) are also slated as primary backups. Albury currently sits behind Jorge Wright, but ahead of Shaq Rowell, who played significant action for the Mountaineers as the 2011 season was winding down.

Three defensive starters are given the distinction of being injured and out for the spring, including Star linebacker Terence Garvin, Buck linebacker Jewone Snow and boundary cornerback Pat Miller. Tyler Anderson, who had been listed at Buck, is now the top candidate for the defensive end position, as Will Clarke is moved to defensive tackle.

Donovan Miles was the second-string Mike linebacker to begin camp and now sits at second-string B back behind Ryan Clarke. Ryan Nehlen is ahead of Ivan McCartney for the Z receiver position, though that could be in large part due to McCartney's nagging hamstring injury that has kept him out of much of the spring.

There are not many changes from what was presented to the media at the start of camp and in truth, a depth chart in spring is not much of an indication of anything other than who you may see with which unit in the Gold-Blue Game.

Still, it provides a look at what the coaches are seeing and it's never too early to start envisioning what the team will look like come Sept. 1.
