No real surprises on UConn's depth chart

UConn has posted its notes for Thursday's season opener against Maine which also means an updated depth chart is available.

There's nothing too stunning on the two-deep chart. The biggest news may be the Tyler Davis is listed as a second-string tight end ahead of Zordan Holman even though he started preseason camp as a quarterback.

Kyle Schafenacker wasn't on the post-spring practice two-deep but was the No. 2 guy at left guard as every practice open to the media and his is listed as Tommy Hopkins' primary backup at that position.

With Jon Hicks' status for the Maine game up in the air, Chris Britton is now on the two-deep chart at linebacker.

The previous depth chart had John Green as the backup at both cornerback slots but now redshirt freshman John Robinson is listed as the backup to Jamar Summers.

On special teams, true freshman Nick Zecchino is the No. 1 long snapper and Brice McAllister (also a backup safety) is listed along with Arkeel Newsome as the top two kickoff returners.

Also, Thursday's season opener will air on the American Digital Network. For those in Connecticut, what that means is that the game is available on WCCT and will be shown on a tape delay basis on SNY on Saturday at 3 p.m.

It should also be noted that the weekly radio show featuring UConn coach Bob Diaco and a pair of players will be held at Geno's Grille in Storrs. With the Maine game being played on Thursday this week, the show will take place on Tuesday from 6-7 p.m. On a normal game week the show was take place on Thursdays.
