New UM football depth chart for first scrimmage

The new depth chart is out, just in time for Saturday's 10 a.m. scrimmage at Spanish River High School in Boca Raton.

The changes: starting quarterback is Jacory Harris OR Stephen Morris, as opposed to just Harris in the last released depth chart.

> First-team tailback is Mike James OR Storm Johnson OR Lamar Miller, as opposed to just Storm Johnson.

> First-team cornerback is Brandon McGee, as opposed to Thomas Finnie.

> First-team right defensive tackle is Micanor Regis, as opposed to Curtis Porter.

> First-team right defensive end is Olivier Vernon, as opposed to Adewale Ojomo.

Some "ors'' in the second-team department are Tyrone Cornileus OR A.J. Highsmith battling for second-team strong safety; Keion Payne OR Eduardo Clements battling for second-team left cornerback; Thomas Finnie OR Lee Chambers battling for second-team right cornerback.

Also, Malcolm Bunche is still listed as a co-starter with Seantrel Henderson; and Harland Gunn and Brandon Linder are battling for first-team left guard.

INJURY REPORT

    It seems like more Canes are wearing the red jerseys every day. Add tailback Lamar Miller to the list on Thursday. OLJoel Figueroa, DE Dyron Dye, TE Andrew Tallman, WR Aldarius Johnson, TE Asante Cleveland, LB C.J. Holton and LB Kelvin Cain were sidelined. DT Marcus Forston also is injured. UM coach Al Golden said he didn't want to release any new information about Forston (knee) until "we feel we have enough information to talk about it and when he's comfortable with his doctors and our trainers. We're just moving forward right now... until we learn more.''

 

SCRIMMAGE INFORMATION

When: Saturday, April 2

Where: Spanish River High School, Jog Road and Yamato Road, Boca Raton

Time: Parking opens at 8 a.m.; Gates open at 8:30 a.m.; Kickoff is at 10 a.m.

Admission: Free

Note: There will be a "coffee with the Canes" session for all Silver Canes donors and levels above that, as well as high school coaches from Palm Beach County, from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. For more information, Hurricane Club members can call 305-284-6883.

Golden said there aren't enough healthy bodies to do a full spring-game type scrimmage Saturday, so the Canes will use an "offense vs defense and we'll do multiple situations -- short yardage, backed up, third down. We'll move the ball all over the field and go from there.''

Golden said he's particularly interested in seeing how the quarterbacks perform. All three will share reps, he said.
