Penn State Releases Updated Depth Chart

New, 66 comments

ALL OF THE 'ORS.'

Eric Francis

Penn State released its most recent depth chart earlier today. To the surprise of few, the starting quarterback is still listed as 'OR' between Tyler Ferguson and Christian Hackenberg.

Some other noteworthy observations on the latest depth chart:

  • The right tackle position is listed as Garry Gilliam OR Adam Gress, meaning Gilliam has adjusted well to his transition from tight end and could find himself as the full-time starter.
  • True freshman Brandon Bell is listed as a second-team outside linebacker. The likelihood of Bell taking a redshirt season is now highly improbable.
  • Adrian Amos is listed as a starter at safety, with the other starting safety listed as Malcolm Willis OR Ryan Keiser. Keiser must be having one hell of a camp to be considered for a starting position over Willis, who has three seasons of quality experience and performed admirably.
  • Redshirt freshman Jake Kiley has been moved to wide receiver. This is a surprising move considering the quality depth at wide receiver and Kiley's performance in the secondary at the Blue-White Game.
  • Bill Belton and Akeel Lynch are listed as the top two kickoff returners. Adrian Amos is not included in the list of five kickoff returners, meaning it's very doubtful we'll see him in that role at all this season.

Additionally, the following former run-ons have been awarded scholarships for the 2013-2014 season:

DL Carl Nassib
