Wake Forest hosts Syracuse: Depth chart musings

QB/WR/KR Kendall Hinton makes a return to the depth chart, albeit as a third stringer in three spots.

With Wake Forest’s big win against Louisville giving the fan base some hope entering the home stretch of the season, the Deacs are still trying to find answers in their secondary. Younger players like DBs Zion Keith and Tyriq Hardimon have been in and out of the two deep and appear to be out of it for this week.

The biggest shocker is that Keegan Good, a walk on, is listed in the two-deep at a position that has been a problem for the Deacs all season. In minor news on the defensive side, Luke Masterson will continue to start at buck linebacker, after coming into the season as a safety.

Perhaps the bigger splash (but smaller impact) of the depth chart release was seeing Kendall Hinton’s name. Not once, not twice, but three times as a quarterback, slot receiver, and kick returner.

Although Hinton appears a lot, it’s highly unlikely we’ll see him in all three roles for the same game unless it’s a blowout.

Taking a step back and looking at the big picture, it’s just fascinating that the Deacs still aren’t sure what they have in the secondary and perhaps that epitomizes the season for the defense, we just don’t know.
