Rutgers post-spring depth chart

Rutgers has released its post-spring depth chart, with a few changes of note. No, that does not mean a resolution to the quarterback derby. Chas Dodd and Gary Nova are still competing, as expected.

Here are some of the highlights on the new two-deep:

  • There is more shuffling on the offensive line. Betim Bujari, who was listed as the starting left guard going into the spring, is now the starting center. The left guard job is open between Antwan Lowery and David Osei. Taj Alexander, listed at right tackle before the spring, is now the starting right guard. Maryland transfer R.J. Dill has moved into the starting right tackle spot. The only position that remains unchanged from the start of spring is Kaleb Johnson at left tackle.

  • Competition also remains open at tight end, between D.C. Jefferson and Paul Carrezola. As expected, there is no starter at running back, either, with Jawan Jamison and Savon Huggins still competing for the job.

  • Michael Larrow was listed as one starter at defensive end going into the spring, but he now has a battle on his hands with Marcus Thompson. That spot is up for grabs. There is also open competition at the other defensive end spot between Ka'Lial Glaud and Marvin Booker.

  • Isaac Holmes is now listed as the starter at defensive tackle, next to Scott Vallone. Kenneth Kirksey had been listed as the starter going into practice, but he was injured most of the spring.

  • Kevin Snyder is pushing Jamal Merrell for a starting linebacker spot.

  • True freshman Kyle Federico has won the starting kicker job, as he appears at the top of the depth chart.

Coaches always like to attach a caveat and say these are all subject to change when fall practice begins. But for now, you have an idea of where some of the players stack up headed into the offseason.
