The latest Wake Forest depth chart is out. What’s it looking like for the Deacs’ upcoming game against Delaware? We break down the two-deep for this week’s contest.
The most notable change is that Kendall Hinton is now Wake Forest’s starting quarterback. Additionally, Clawson has said that there are no definitive plans to get John Wolford in the game on Saturday, so it will be Kendall’s show. If Wake gets up big on Saturday, then we could see Wolford, but it seems like the alternating quarterbacks gameplan is (finally) gone.
Another interesting note on the offensive side is that Matt Colburn is still listed as the second running back, even though Tyler Bell has returned. I believe Colburn certainly deserves this given his strong performance to start the season. It’s just further confirmation of the team’s depth given that Tyler Bell started six games last year.
I believe it’s also very encouraging to see that Justin Herron is listed on the depth chart as the team’s starting left tackle. He left the Duke game in the 4th quarter with an injury and did not return. He may still miss the Delaware game, but him being listed means that he has a legitimate chance to play, and has a very good chance of playing against Indiana.
On the defensive side, Wake should hopefully get some familiar faces back. Willie Yarbary and Jaboree Williams both missed the Duke game with injuries, but both are back on top of the depth chart at their respective positions.
One player who is missing, however, is Demetrius Kemp, who left the Duke game with an ankle injury. Thomas Brown will start in his place, and true freshman Ja’Cquez Williams will likely play in a reserve role.
Wake’s next game is just two days away. It’s an excellent opportunity to go 3-0. Go Deacs!
