Wake Forest Releases Depth Chart for Boston College Game

Dave Clawson didn't make many changes from last week

Wake Forest head coach Dave Clawson released the depth chart for the Boston College game today.

The only major change to note is that Isaiah Robinson is now listed as the fourth string running back, and Christian Beal has dropped to fifth string.

This change likely means that Beal will redshirt this year, and have an extra year of eligibility. This is a great decision by Clawson, as it gives the Deacs an extra year of an explosive running back, and doesn't needlessly waste a year of eligibility at a time when the position is deep.

Beal didn’t see any carries last week, so no extra carries are likely to be given to any of Carney, Colburn, Byrd, or Robinson by redshirting Beal. I would expect to see a lot more of Carney against BC than we did against Presbyterian.

John Wolford is still listed as the starting quarterback, with Kendall Hinton right behind him as second string.

While I don't want us to use a two quarterback system, as it has failed miserably in the past, I would expect both Wolford and Hinton to see a good number of snaps, particularly if Clawson wants to give the BC defense a different look, and if one or the other of them struggles against a fairly strong defense led by Harold Landry.

Essang Bassey is still listed as starting at cornerback, which leads me to think that Cedric Jiles either isn’t fully healthy yet, or the staff wants to get him some snaps in game situations to become more familiar with the playbook before they are comfortable starting him. Jiles did not play against Presbyterian, despite being listed on the depth chart.
