Clemson releases official depth chart for Georgia Tech game


Top-ranked Clemson released its official depth chart Saturday in advance of Thursday’s Georgia Tech game at Memorial Stadium in Clemson.

The biggest question is who still start at the two defensive end positions? The answer is still uncertain.

According to Clemson’s weekly game notes, Logan Rudolph, Xavier Thomas and Justin Foster are listed as co-starters for the Tigers’ season opener. Rudolph and Foster are listed as co-starters on one side of the line and Thomas and Rudolph are listed as starters on the other side.

K.J. Henry is listed as a backup behind Rudolph and Foster, while Justin Mascoll is the backup for Thomas and Rudolph.

At cornerback, as expected, Derion Kendrick will start opposite of A.J. Terrell, while Sheridan Jones and LeAnthony Williams are listed as his backups. Mario Goodrich and freshman Andrew Booth will back up Terrell.

The surprise move on the depth chart is on the defensive line where freshman Tyler Davis is listed as a co-starter with sophomore Jordan Williams.

On offense, Diondre Overton did win the battle as the slot receiver, as expected, and will be backed up by T.J. Chase and Will Swinney. Cornell Powell is listed as a backup to Justyn Ross, while freshman Frank Ladson is listed on the third team.

Fellow freshman Joseph Ngata is listed as the second-team receiver behind Tee Higgins, while freshman Brannon Spector is third team.

Darien Rencher is Clemson’s third team running back behind Travis Etienne and Lyn-J Dixon, while Luke Price is listed as the second-team tight end, along with freshman Jaelyn Lay.
