Hurricanes Release Official Depth Chart for the Game Against Duke

Joel Auerbach

It's the Hurricanes' final game of the season this weekend, and the new depth chart is out.

Whether we like it, or not, the Duke game is now the last game of the year for the Canes. They have a chance to "win" the Coastal division, even if it is in name only, and not in the record books. By no means should this be a "who the hell cares" game for fans. It is still a game that matters. It matters to the seniors that are playing, it matters to the freshmen who have grown, and it matters to the sport.

That being said, here's how the Canes will line up in Durham:

  • Not surprisingly, the name at the top of the depth chart is new. Freshman wide receiver Herb Waters had a huge game against USF, and is now listed as the team's number 1. While he earned it, it certainly isn't to say that Hurns has been bad. Hurns is banged up, and just isn't able to be as productive right now.
  • Phillip Dorsett is listed as the teams number 2 receiver, after having a great game as well. Kendall Thompkins is behind him on the heels of a great showing. Garrett Kidd still shows up on the chart as well, which is just awesome.
  • Malcolm Bunche and Ereck Flowers are co-starters at left tackle. Bunche didn't have his best game Saturday, and needs to step it up if he wants to get back on top. Flowers won't make it easy.
  • On defense, Armbrister, Gaines, and Perryman/Paul are your linebackers. Eddie Johnson has a good game back, and I would be surprised to see him not starting come Saturday.
  • It's good to see Gionni Paul back on the depth chart after a bit of a hiccup.
  • The safeties are listed as Kacy Rogers and Rayshawn Jenkins, who made his first start against USF, and played very well. No official word yet on the availability of Deon Bush this week. If he can go, expect Jenkins and Bush to be your starters.
  • Ladarius Gunter has locked down that starting CB spot across from the senior Brandon McGee. Tracy Howard has been playing much better as of late, but Gunter is truly showing out.

There you have it, people. The only question mark so far is Deon Bush. You would have to think that if he can play, he will, just maybe not as a starter.
