Other true freshmen on the defensive depth chart are Christian Brown and Korey Harris along the defensive line and Sean Walters at linebacker.
The No. 1 offense has almost no changes from the pre-camp depth chart, save for freshman Jordan Thompson being listed as one of the two slot receivers. He replaces J.D. Woods there, but Woods is now a starter at one of the two outside spots. The other receivers are All-America candidates Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey.
Notable by his absence anywhere on the depth chart at receiver is Ivan McCartney, who has spent most of his two-plus years at WVU bouncing into and out of favor with the coaches.
The offensive line consists of Quinton Spain and Pat Eger at tackles, Josh Jenkins and Jeff Braun at guards and Joe Madsen at center. The quarterback, of course, is Geno Smith, while Shawne Alston is listed as the No. 1 running back ahead of Andrew Buie and Dustin Garrison.
Only two true freshmen are listed on the offensive depth chart - Thompson and third-string quarterback Ford Childress.
As expected, Tyler Bitancurt is the place-kicker and Corey Smith will do kickoffs. Smith is also listed ahead of Mike Molinari at punter.
Jerry Cooper and freshman John DePalma are both listed as long snappers, Molinari the holder and Austin the primary returner for both punts and kickoffs.
