Vanderbilt releases first depth chart ahead of Georgia opener
Vanderbilt is gearing up to host Georgia this week and the Commodores have now shared how their depth chart shakes out.
There are just two positions still up for grabs on offense, but quarterback is one of them as coach Derek Mason said last week that he wouldn’t announce a starter until kickoff. Riley Neal and Deuce Wallace are competing, as the depth chart shared by Chad Bishop of 247Sports suggests. With one of the better groups of offensive skill players in the SEC featuring RB Ke’Shawn Vaughn, WR Kalija Lipscomb and TE Jared Pinkney.
There are plenty more positions on defense yet to be settled, including at defensive end, where Rutger Reitmaier and Elijah McAllister are competing for a backup role. At linebacker, Feleti Afemui and Caleb Peart are battling it out, as are Brayden DeVault-Smith and Dimitri Moore.
At cornerback, Cam Watkins and Randall Haynie are still competing to declare a starter.
On special teams, Mason is still deciding on his punter as Harrison Smith, a sophomore, and Jared Wheatley, a freshman, are competing.
The Commodores will host No. 3 Georgia at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday on the SEC Network.
