Clemson announces a couple of shakeups on post-spring depth chart

There were a few shakeups with the Clemson post-spring depth chart, which was released Wednesday.

Kelly Bryant, who went 12-2 as a starter last year and led the Tigers to a third straight ACC Championship and appearance in the College Football Playoff, will head into fall camp in August as the Tigers’ No. 1 quarterback.

Freshman Trevor Lawrence and redshirt freshman Chase Brice are listed as co-No. 2 quarterbacks. Ben Batson, the son of strength and conditioning coach Joey Batson, is listed as the No. 4 quarterback. Batson was a preferred walk-on this year.

Running back Travis Etienne, who led the Tigers in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns in 2017, is listed as the starter there, while Adam Choice and Tavien Feaster are listed as co-No. 2 guys.

Johnson Simpson will start at left guard with Matt Bockhorst and Jackson Carman backing him up. Sean Pollard is the starting right guard with Cade Stewart and Zach Giella listed as backups. Blake Vinson will backup Mitch Hyatt at left tackle, while Chandler Reeves and Noah DeHond will be the backups at right tackle.

Tee Higgins and Trevion Thompson are listed as co-starters at the boundary wide receiver position and Diondre Overton is listed as No. 3 on the depth chart. Higgins’ monster spring game allowed the sophomore to move into the co-No 1 spot.

Amari Rodgers will start on the field side with Cornell Powell and Derion Kendrick listed as co-backups. Hunter Renfrow, no surprise, will start in the slot and will be backed up by T.J. Chase and Will Swinney.

On the defensive side of the ball there were a few shakeups as well, especially at linebacker where Kendall Joseph is listed as the starter at middle linebacker and J.D. Davis is listed as the starter at weakside backer.

Justin Foster is listed as the backup to Clelin Ferrell at strongside defensive end, while Chris Register is backing up Austin Bryant.

A.J. Terrell and Mark Fields are co-starters at the field side cornerback position, while Tanner Muse and K’Von Wallace are the starters at safety. Trayvon Mullen is the starter at the boundary corner position.

Alex Spence and Greg Huegel are listed as co-starters at placekicker. Will Spiers is the starting punter.

We have seen it before. We have seen a star born before our eyes. We all remember when Deshaun Watson officially became Clemson’s starting quarterback back in 2014. Watson came in at Florida State, (…)
