Wake Forest at NC State: Depth chart musings

Wake Forest will go with new QB Jamie Newman.

NCAA Football: Wake Forest at Florida State Glenn Beil-USA TODAY Sports

With QB Sam Hartman out for the rest of the season, Demon Deacon fans were anxious to see who would get the nod as the starter the rest of the way. The case was made for the “vet” in Kendall Hinton (case made here) while others were hoping for Jamie Newman (case made here).

With the depth chart released, the answer is pointing towards Newman, the redshirt sophomore.

Newman is atop the depth chart with no “or” designation with Kendall Hinton. In a bit of a unique situation, walk-on quarterback Matthew Considine made the three-deep for the signal caller spot.

In addition to getting the backup job, Hinton has disappeared from the other spots (slot receiver and kick returner).

In minor news, Mike Allen makes an appearance as a third defensive end after making his debut against Syracuse and Keegan Good continues to be listed in the two-deep.

The Deacs will have to rally around Newman for the rest of the way to keep their bowl game streak alive however, my bold prediction is that Newman won’t start all of the remaining games.
