UConn Football Depth Chart & Breakdown For Wyoming Cowboys

Multiple changes on the offensive side of the ball for Lou Spanos’ UConn squad.

Ian Bethune/The UConn Blog

UConn football interim head coach Lou Spanos has released his depth chart for Saturday’s game against Wyoming of the Mountain West, and there are some changes, as expected.

  • Last week, Steven Krajewski was listed as the starter but Spanos said during his weekly press conference last week that the quarterback who gives them the best chance to win. When they came out against Army on the first series, freshman Tyler Phommachanh took the first snap under center. He is listed as the starter for this week.
  • Krajewski is listed as the backup to Phommachanh with Jack Zergiotis and Micah Leon in an “OR” situation as third string quarterback.
  • Nate Carter has jumped over Kevin Mensah as the lead running back. Mensah only saw action on the first series of the game and then in the fourth quarter when the game against Army was out of hand.
  • Noel Ofori-Nyadu has moved over to right guard as the starter, replacing Dylan Niedrowski there. Ofori-Nyadu had been the backup left guard.
  • Keelan Marion and Heron Maurisseau swap spots on the depth chart at wide receiver, as is Marion now the starter. The same goes for Kevens Clercius and Cameron Hairston, with Clercius the starter. Aaron Turner and Jakhai Gill also changed places, with Turner the starter.
  • Defensively, Malik Dixon swaps spots with Diamond Harrell on the two-deep at safety with Dixon taking over as one of the starting safeties.
  • On special teams with his kickoff return for a touchdown, Brian Brewton replaces Devontae Houston as the lead kickoff returner. Robert Burns will be alongside Brewton.
  • Keelan Marion takes over the top punt returner with Jakhai Gill moving to the backup.
  • With the injury to Brian Keating, Nilay Upadhyayula will be the starting long snapper. Kevin Cahill will be the backup.
