Canes release final spring depth chart

HOLLYWOOD -- I'm hanging out at the Westin Diplomat Hotel and Resort today waiting on the BCS to come out of meetings and tell us what their two to three proposed plans to determine college football's nation champion is going to be after the 2013 season (here's a link to today's story).

Vaughn TelemaqueBy then, Al Golden and the Canes might actually be back on their feet and able to make a real push for the title. For now, though, the rebuilding continues.

Earlier this morning, the school released its last depth chart following spring football. With a good number of talented freshmen set to arrive -- including star cornerback Tracy Howard and running back Duke Johnson -- I expect it will look different by the time the Canes finally line up at Boston College Sept. 1.

Anyway, no major changes following the spring game except that senior Vaughn Telemaque, the guy with the most starting experience on the team, is finally back with the first team.

As for the early arrivals -- junior college transfer Ladarius Gunter is slotted on the first team at cornerback with true freshman Larry Hope right behind him. Freshman Ereck Flowers is the backup at right tackle.

Here it is (first team is followed by the second team):

QB: Stephen Morris or Ryan Williams
RB: Mike James, Eduardo Clements
FB: Maurice Hagens, Sean Harvey
WR: Phillip Dorsett, Kendal Thompkins
WR: Rashawn Scott or Allen Hurns
TE: Asante Cleveland, Clive Walford, Daniel Perry
LT: Malcolm Bunche, Ben Jones
LG: Jonathan Feliciano or Jermaine Johnson
C: Shane McDermott or Jared Wheeler
RG: Brandon Linder, Jeremy Lewis
RT: Seantrel Henderosn, Ereck Flowers

DE: Anthony Chickillo, Ricardo Williams
DT: Darius Smith, Luther Robinson
DT: Curtis Porter, Olsen Pierre
DE: Shayon Green, Kelvin Cain
SLB: Jimmy Gaines, Eddie Johnson
MLB: Denzel Perryman, Raphael Kirby
WLB: Ramon Buchanan, Gionni Paul or Tyrone Cornelius
CB: Brandon McGee, Thomas Finnie
CB: Ladarius Gunter, Larry Hope
SS: Vaughn Telemaqu, Kacy Rodgers, Andrew Swasey
FS: Ray-Ray Armstrong, Ali Highmsith

Kickoffs: Jake Wieclaw, Matt Goudis
Punts: Dalton Botts, Jake Wieclaw
Field goals: Jake Wieclaw, Matt Goudis
Short snapper: Brandon Linder, Sean McNally

Telemaque and Ray Ray are going to be sick this year. Gonna call them chicken & soup.

Tight Ends??

It's good to see that Luther Robinson is now 2nd team. He got motivated after Golden asked him to move to offense. The kid is talented and he can really help the defense.

And with those last few comments that is the official and final end of Canespace.

It has been fun. It has been real.

But at this point it is no longer real or fun. Good bye and good luck Canespacers!

Happy blogging...

Depth chart? Seriously, where is the depth. Outside of Chickillo and Perryman everyone else is a pretender. Hope that the 300 freshmen can step in right away. Pathetic, lucky if they finish 6 - 6.

Im going to give Al Golden a BJ.

we've got a good set of tight ends, I hope they really incorporate them into the offense since theres a lack of depth at WR

ray ray??,come on..how many times did we see this guy get burned,look out of place and miss tackles..no this guy is an overrated bust...get off the hype....

The depth chart is what it is now only because of the injured who didn't play during the spring or who got injured beforehand. Remember we have a ton of talent coming in a few weeks and then the summer session. Some of those recruits already have permission to workout with the team in the weight room and the field (no pads). Some of it didn't look too bad but I do understand the Ray Ray thought. Dorsett burned him and if it wasn't for Gunter coming in for support he would have scored. Ray ray did have a couple of pass breakups and a pick maybe 2 in the scrimmages and spring game.

I'll reserve my judgement for the summer when I see these guys with the new recruits causing havoc for the depth chart. U Tough!!!


Lots of really good DB's coming in, and a couple already in camp.They may not have the top defensive backfeild this year, but next year with some seasoning,they should be the one of the best units in college footbal. Dont sleep on this kid Larry Hope, that sombitch is big, fast and he seems to be pretty aggressive.Bush is a physical monster and Howard has all the skills(may not be the fastest).

Do you think Vernon Davis from Coral reef have a chance to make the 53 man roster.

It's amazing even the lame Herald writers talk nonsense about NC's in a few years. Stop being homers. Let hope we can win our division in a couple of years.
