WSU Pre-Fall Camp Depth Chart released

STEVEN AYERS

FALL CAMP FIGURES to hear the same refrain from the Cougar coaching staff as the spring -- 'Every starting position is up for grabs.' In looking at the hot-off-the-presses pre-fall camp depth chart released today by Paul Wulff, three positions in particular have an either/or listed as starter -- right defensive tackle, right offensive tackle and quarterback.

Other notable notes from the depth chart include Jeshua Anderson listed as the No. 3 "X" receiver behind starter Daniel Blackledge and Johnny Forzani. Anderson is a two year starter but has been running track this offseason, didn't participate in spring ball and hasn't gone through the team's voluntary summer workouts, so that probably has much to do with his slotting.

At the same time, Blackledge is said to have made strides this offseason. And the Cougar coaches likely also want Anderson, as well as the entire Cougar team, to come into camp with an "earn it" mentality.

Also of note is that a depth chart is but a guide; there figures to be movement at some positions over the course of fall camp, which kicks off out on the Palouse on Aug. 9.

NOTABLE: Starting cornerback Tyrone Justin has changed his first name to Aire.
