UConn football depth chart and breakdown for Houston Cougars

It’s the final depth chart of Lou Spanos’ tenure as interim head coach at UConn.

Ian Bethune/The UConn Blog

UConn football interim head coach Lou Spanos has released the final depth chart of the 2021 season, and there are few changes.

  • Even though he was listed as the backup last week, Jack Zergiotis got the start vs Clemson. Steve Krajewski took over for him and Krajewski is named the starter once again this week.
  • Tackle Chase Lundt suffered a leg injury during the Clemson game and is not on the depth chart his week. Robby Rochester and Dylan Niedrowski are in an “OR” situation for Saturday.
  • At running back, Kevin Mensah and Nate Carter are in an “OR’ situation for the game.
  • Malcolm Bell replaces Kaleb Anthony as the backup to Tre Wortham at cornerback,
  • Jeremy Lucien is not listed on the depth chart this week. Stan Cross and Kaleb Anthony are listed in an “OR” situation for the game.
    UPDATE: Lucien has entered the transfer portal which is why he is no longer listed on the two-deep this week.
  • Diamond Harrell is not listed on the depth chart at safety this week. He had been Durante Jones’ backup. Instead of backing up Malik Dixon, Jalon Ferrell backs up Jones. Alfred Chea takes the backup spot behind Dixon.
