Pitt Football Depth Chart Notes

By: Mike Vukovcan

Pittsburgh (KDKA)- Todd Graham and the Pitt Panthers officially started to game plan yesterday for their season vs. Buffalo.

Following practice, Graham officially named a couple of starters for the season opener.

In somewhat of surprise, Juantez Hollins (Aliquippa grad) was named the Panthers starting left tackle. Barring a late changes, the starting offensive line will be: Juantez Hollins-Chris Jacobson-Ryan Turnley-Lucas Nix-Jordan Gibbs.

*Graham also announced that former 4-star recruit Todd Thomas is the starting spur linebacker. It appears as though Thomas has found a home after playing both safety and wide receiver. It’s very unusual that a team starts a freshman linebacker, but it’s obvious Graham is starting the most talented player regardless of their class.

*Freshman walk-on Trey Anderson contined to run as Pitt’s 2nd team quarterback ahead of 4-star recruit Mark Myers.

*Paul Zeise of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette pointed out two freshman to keep an eye on this season: tailback Corey Davis and receiver Ronald Jones. Zeise says that “Davis is fun to watch, he’s explosive, he is fast and he is a threat to go the distance every time he touches it.” Jones is a 5-8, 165 lb. speedster from Fort Meade, Florida.

    Paul Ziese made some bold predictions about those 2 freshman, the only thing is that he is comparing these 2 guys to the rest of the PITT roster. Ronald Jones was ranked the 275th wr nationwide no stars, and Corey Davis was 154th rb 2 stars these guys wouldn’t be playing for any other BCS school because no other BCS automatic qualifier recruited them. If these guys are guys to watch then PITT is in big trouble. HIGH OCTANE GARBAGE!!!!!!
