Allen, Hunt share starting quarterback spot in updated depth chart

first_imgEven a pre-Penn State depth chart released on Monday failed to bring any clarity to Syracuse’s cloudy quarterback situation.Terrel Hunt and Drew Allen are still listed as co-owners of the top quarterback spot. So, just as Scott Shafer has planned for the past few weeks, the Orange’s starter will be unannounced until kickoff against the Nittany Lions on Saturday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.Perhaps the most notable change on the entire depth chart, though, is running back George Morris II’s addition as SU’s starting kick returner. Shafer said he likes running backs to return kicks, so he’s replaced wide receiver Jeremiah Kobena, who previously occupied that spot. Running back Devante McFarlane is listed on the second team, where he will replace Wayne Morgan.The only other change on offense since the last time a depth chart was released in July at the Atlantic Coast Conference Football Kickoff in Greensboro, N.C., is that Jerome Smith or Prince-Tyson Gulley are listed as the starting running backs. Previously Smith, a team captain, was the sole occupant of that spot.The only change for the second team on offense is Daniel Anyaegbunam’s move from right tackle to right guard, with Michael Lasker slotting in at tackle. Guard John Miller is off the depth chart entirely.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe starting defense is the same as was listed at ACC Kickoff, except Ri’Shard Anderson or Brandon Reddish is now listed opposite Keon Lyn. Freshmen Isaiah Johnson and Marqez Hodge join the second team at defensive end and outside linebacker, respectively. Josh Kirkland is now the sole occupant of the second-team opposite outside linebacker position and Darius Kelly is now sharing the second-string free safety position with Morgan.
