MORGANTOWN - Unless some things happen between now and Sept. 1, West Virginia's football depth chart for its opening game against Marshall seems pretty much set.
And there are virtually no surprises for anyone who followed the movements on that chart over the two-plus weeks of preseason camp.
Coach Dana Holgorsen updated his team's depth chart Monday following two-plus weeks of practice and another day of evaluation, and it was exactly as expected.
In fact, only on defense are there substantial changes from the depth chart Holgorsen had going into camp. And those changes primarily involve position switches rather than new faces.
According to the new depth chart, the three starters along the front of WVU's 3-4 defense will be Shaq Rowell at nose tackle, flanked by Will Clarke at tackle and Jorge Wright at end. Wright began fall camp at nose tackle, flanked by Clarke and Tyler Anderson.
Anderson is still in the lineup, but at the Buck linebacker position, which is essentially a big linebacker who can move down to the line and give the defense a 4-3 look. Jewone Snow was listed in that position at the start of camp, but was moved early and also injured. He's the most significant absence on the new depth chart, listed nowhere.
The other linebackers listed are Terence Garvin at the Star position, along with Jared Barber at Will and Doug Rigg at Sam, the two inside spots.
In the secondary, Pat Miller and Brodrick Jenkins are the cornerbacks, with Darwin Cook and true freshman Karl Joseph at the safeties.
As for depth, the corners listed behind Jenkins and Miller include Cecil Level, Avery Williams and two true freshmen, Nana Kyeremeh and Ricky Rumph. K.J. Dillon is the backup to Cook, who has also been injured.
