West Virginia Releases Preseason Depth Chart

New, 2 comments

Dana Holgorsen released the first pre-season depth chart at Big 12 Media Day today. A lot of the depth chart appears as we expected, but there are some interesting choices on special teams.

Dana Holgorsen released the preseason depth chart today at Big 12 Media Day, and things are pretty much as we expected. There are a few shakeups on offense, with Ka'Raun White bumping Ricky Rogers off the two-deep and Yodny Cajuste being listed as the clear starter at left tackle. On the defensive side of things, Larry Jefferson has emerged as the backup to Christian Brown at defensive end.

But most notably, special teams has a few unlikely characters listed at punt return. We heard about KJ Dillon returning punts in the spring, and he is now listed as the starter. William Crest will be backing KJ up, followed by former starter Jordan Thompson.
