UNLV football releases its spring depth chart.

UNLV football on Monday released its spring depth chart, and it offers little insight to the battle at quarterback.

Coach Bobby Hauck listed the top three quarterbacks — junior Caleb Herring, senior Sean Reilly and freshman Nick Sherry — in alphabetical order. Junior transfer James Boyd, who took most of the quarterback snaps at Friday’s scrimmage, is not listed. He may end up moving to defensive end, where he played while at USC.

At other spots, Marcus Sullivan and Devante Davis are listed as the top wide receivers, freshman Peni Vea is the top free safety, and there’s a battle at both defensive end spots. The candidates offer varying skill sets, but the most upside may belong to sophomore Jordan Sparkman, a 6-foot-6, 250-pound sophomore.

This is all going to undergo changes as the spring wears on, but this is a chance to see who has set themselves apart thus far.

  1. Why is Cameron Jefferson, who is listed at 6"6, 290 pounds, playing left guard while someone who's 6"2 260 playing RT?

  2. Same reason Caleb Herring is QB. Hauck's last year.
