Anchor Drop, September 20, 2023: The freshmen move up the depth chart

Finally, are we going to see Clark Lea’s recruiting pay dividends?

NCAA Football: SEC Media Day Steve Roberts-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Yesterday was Clark Lea’s weekly press conference, new depth chart was released, blah blah blah, at least he isn’t a fascist like Lincoln Riley:

(Which, of course, Kentucky’s On3 site saying that Vanderbilt is dealing with a “lengthy” list of injuries is just indicative of how closed access is a lot of places: when the coach is being honest about which players are injured, it suddenly looks like you have a ton of injuries.)

Really, my only takeaway is that finally the coaching staff has moved London Humphries to the top of the depth chart, with Martel Hight and Trudell Berry listed as co-starters at each cornerback spot. One frustration I’ve had with Lea is that while his two recruiting classes have been good, there are still a lot of the last staff’s recruits playing at a lot of positions and I could probably swallow a bad season with the youngsters getting experience.
