The depth chart for next week’s Clemson game has been released, with only a few changes. Most of them are important, so let’s run through them.
At quarterback, Danny O’Brien and C.J. Brown are listed as co-starters. This isn’t a surprise – Brown replaced O’Brien early in the Georgia Tech game, and coach Randy Edsall said we wouldn’t know the starting quarterback until later this week.
At left guard, Pete White replaces Andrew Gonnella as the starter, with true freshman Nate Clarke as his backup. De’Onte Arnett moves over to right guard to back up Josh Cary. Also not a surprise, as White and Clarke were high profile recruits and White saw some playing time after an injury to Justin Lewis last year.
The linebacking corps remains the same as last week, with Kenny Tate at STAR, Lorne Goree at Mike, and Demetrius Hartsfield at Will. Tate sat out the Georgia Tech game with an injury, and Hartsfield suffered an injury during the game that caused him to miss the rest of it.
Avery Graham is the new back-up kick returner, replacing Tony Logan. Graham will back up Justus Pickett, as the Terps continue to look for a solution for their special teams woes.
The Clemson game will kick-off at 7:00 p.m. this Saturday. It is this year’s homecoming game.
