Miami football has started fall camp for the 2018 season. Here is the projected two-deep depth chart for the 2018 Hurricanes heading into a battle with LSU.
Fall camp has started in Coral Gables, FL on the Greentree practice fields at the University of Miami. The Hurricanes enter year three of the Mark Richt era with improved athleticism and leadership but there are still depth issues at a few major positions. With the opening scrimmages looming the depth chart will begin to take shape for Coach Richt’s ‘Canes.
There have been plenty of new faces getting media attention between spring practices and summer workouts that will find their name on the depth chart this fall. The ‘Canes have seemingly weathered a few early entries into the NFL Draft and should be ready for another run at the ACC Championship Game.
Here is the 2018 two-deep depth chart projection heading into the LSU game in Arlington, Texas.
Starter: Malik Rosier
Backups: N’Kosi Perry, Jarren Williams, Cade Weldon
Malik Rosier is entering his redshirt senior season and will be the ‘Canes starting quarterback in 2018. Rosier guided the Hurricanes to a 10-3 record and Orange Bowl appearance in 2017 after throwing for 26 touchdowns and rushing for five more. Rosier has the experience, maturity, and mettle to make plays at big points in big games.
2017 signee N’Kosi Perry seems to be getting a nod as the first man in behind Rosier. Perry redshirted in 2017 and has been labeled as a guy that looks for the home run or to take off running. If Perry can improve his check down ability he’ll be a force in orange and green. Behind him are Cade Weldon, also a 2017 signee that redshirted last season and Jarren Williams. Williams is a 2018 signee who is likely to redshirt this season.
