Ian Bethune/The UConn Blog

UConn football interim head coach Lou Spanos has released his depth chart for Saturday’s game against the Vanderbilt Commodores and there are some changes to two-deep again.

  • At quarterback, with Tyler Phommachanh entrenching himself as QB1, there is now a more clear pecking order behind him. Steven Krajewski is listed as the backup with Jack Zergiotis listed as the third string quarterback.
  • Brandon Niemenski replaces Jayce Medlock as the backup tight end to Jay Rose.
  • At wide receiver, Elijah Jeffreys replaces Cameron Hairston as the backup to Kevens Clercius.
  • Even though he is day-to-day according to Spanos, Omar Fortt is not listed on the depth chart. Hunter Webb, who has started with Fortt out, is listed as the starter with Desmond Fogle as his backup.
  • Tui Faumuina-Brown replaces Jordan Morrison as the backup to Ian Swenson at one linebacker spot while D.J. Morgan is listed as the backup to Jackson Mitchell at the other.
  • With Myles Bell out with a lower leg injury, Stan Cross moves to the other side at cornerback to backup Tre Wortham. Kaleb Anthony takes Cross’ spot as the backup to Jeremy Lucien.
  • Colin McCarthy is now listed as the backup to Eric Watts. Pierce Devaughn moves to the backup up to Kevon Jones at defensive end.
  • Marquayveon Evans replaces Justin Moore as the backup to Lwal Uguak at defensive tackle.
  • On special teams, Keelan Marion is now listed as the starting punt returner instead of Aaron Turner. Jahkai Gil is still the backup there.
