Depth chart is out

UConn released its depth start for the season opener against Towson.

The biggest surprise was seeing former Hand High star Matt Walsh moving ahead of Jazzmar Clax at fullback. Walsh, the 2012 New Haven Register State Football Most Valuable Player, is the only true freshman listed as a starter on either offense or defense. Classmate Brian Lemelle is the No. 1 punt returner listed. Kyle Schafenacker is second string at offensive guard and is the only other true freshman on the two-deep.

Another surprise was not seeing Andrew Adams on there at all. Adams was a starting safety until he was injured in practice. Obi Melifonwu is the starter there

A couple other thins that caught me eye is Alex Mateas listed as the starting center, Casey Cochran getting the No. 2 QB spot and Reuben Frank (instead of E.J. Norris) are the No. 2 guy at Trevardo Williams' old DE slot.
