Regarding my depth chart handicapping:

1) I still have Dillon Harris playing more LB than DE this year given all the DL talent we have that should be ready to be major contributors. We'll see how spring ball goes and then I will adjust.
2) I am hesitant to insert any true freshman into the two deep day one. Lets see how August football goes first. This should be a year with far fewer true freshman playing more than four games. Durante Jones is probably the most likely of any true freshman to play more than four games this year. I would put Keelan Marion and Darius Bush in that group as well. Devontae Houston is a true wildcard, difficult to say what 2020 might bring. I also see Alfred Chea as another true freshman that might surprise us on D with early 1st team reps.
3) I expect all the JUCOs to immediately land on the two deep - why else would they becoming here.
4) Again, my depth chart is just a guess, I don't profess to have any particular insights or advanced knowledge of the situation. I'm sure I have a couple substantive errors.

My friends son is Khyon Gillespie. He's excited to take on his new role as the back up RB to mensah. Think he can be a sleeper for us.
With all the success he had at the HS level, I certainly hope so... He's got some dog in him too... I expect him to be at least 10-15 lbs heavier than he was when he first got here... if that's the case, then I suspect he'll be a pleasant backfield surprise, which we need.

Hopefully he gets his grades back in order.

No Houston/Wortham on the UConn website roster?
They haven’t added any of the guys that signed in Feb just yet. I wouldn’t be surprised if we have to wait until June/July for those guys... we’ll see.

The five new signees from Feb now have jersey numbers and the guys that enrolled early now have headshots.

Wortham - #7, same as Cam Ross
T. Brown - #15. Interesting choice for an LB
D. Jones - #19
Houston - #25, noted as an RB (at the signing show and in interview it has been mentioned he play some slot WR)
R. Young - #54 for OL

I thought there was another QB last year a freshmen from Amherst. Did he transfer?

You are thinking of Myles Forester (spelling) - he’s still on the team as a WO.
