Tennessee releases Week 1 depth chart for West Virginia game
We have officially entered game week and in preparation for Saturday, Tennessee has released its official depth chart.
As noted, there are still several position battles being had at almost every spot including at quarterback, and it will be interesting to see how Pruitt handles reps on Saturday against West Virginia. In total, the depth chart features 13 “ors” on the list.
Here are the full depth charts courtesy of @DavidWCobb on Twitter:
Keller Chryst and Jarrett Guarantano are listed as co-starters for Saturday and it looks like running backs Ty Chandler, Tim Jordan and Madre London will split carries in the early season. Newcomer Dominick Wood-Anderson, who has stood out in fall camp, gets the start at tight end while Eli Wolf and Austin Pope will battle it out as backups.
Another interesting development is that Josh Palmer and Jauan Jennings will be splitting time at receiver.
The defensive depth chart has figured itself out for the most part, but it will be interesting to see who gets the majority of reps at cornerback between Alontae Taylor and Bryce Thompson.
