OVC Media Guide Depth Chart

The OVC Media Guide has been published. It contains a depth chart for each team. There were numerous interesting tidbits of information:

OFFENSE
*Georgia Tech Transfer Greg Smith is already listed as a starting wide receiver.
*Tyler Ogletree is listed as the #2 Right Tackle. Didn’t he play guard last year?
*Marques Ivory is still listed at #2 quarterback, but there is a heated battle between the talented Ivory and Brooks Robinson.
*Deonte Carter is listed as the starting tight end, but the Anniston Star reports that he may not play this fall as he is just three hours short of graduation.

DEFENSE
*12 Starters are actually listed. While this would give JSU a huge advantage if the refs allowed it, it probably depends on formation.
*Morrell Jones is listed ahead of frequent starter Antonio Bonner at one spot.
*Eric Russell is listed as the #2 WLB despite just moving from tight end.
*Jawaan Booker is the only backup cornerback listed.
*Kevin Dix and Rodney “Big Texas” Garrott are listed as 1 and 2 respectively in a hybrid position for the Gamecocks, interesting in that neither has played a down yet for JSU.

SPECIAL TEAMS
*Andrew Oliva, a freshman from Florida, is listed as the starting kicker. Oliva has a powerful leg and was actively recruited by Arkansas.
