On Monday, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish released the depth charts for the home opener against the Marshall Thundering Herd. Only the slightest of changes were made, but this is also a reminder that the depth chart is still capable of changing quite a bit on gameday — it’s only Monday after all.
2022 Depth Chart: Offense
|4 Lorenzo Styles||76 Joe Alt||55 Jarrett Patterson||52 Zeke Correll||75 Josh Lugg||54 Blake Fisher||88 Mitchell Evans||83 Jayden Thomas||0 Braden Lenzy||25 Chris Tyree||12 Tyler Buchner|
|16 Deion Colzie||79 Tosh Baker||73 Andrew Kristofic||78 Pat Coogan||50 Rocco Spindler||68 Michael Carmody||85 Holden Staes||29 Matt Salerno||15 Tobias Merriweather||OR 7 Audric Estime||OR 18 Steve Angeli|
|-||-||-||-||-||-||38 Sherwood Davis||-||-||OR 3 Logan Diggs||-|
Andrew Kristofic was the starter at LG against Ohio State with Jarrett Patterson out for the night. Kristofic is now listed as the primary backup at both guard positions, with Rocco Spindler dropping to the 3rd spot at LG (although I believe we saw Michael Carmody play a little guard on Saturday). If you’re wondering where freshman Tobias Merriweather is again, according to Marcus Freeman the youngster was a little banged up in camp and is working his way back.
2022 Depth Chart: Defense
|9 Justin Ademilola||57 Jayson Ademilola||56 Howard Cross||99 Rylie Mills||8 Marist Liufau||27 J.D. Bertrand||24 Jack Kiser||28 TaRiq Bracy||2 D.J. Brown||16 Brandon Joseph||20 Ben Morrison|
|OR 12 Jordan Botelho||65 Chris Smith||97 Gabriel Rubio||31 NaNa Osafo-Mensah||24 Jack Kiser||44 Junior Tuihalamaka||27 J.D. Bertrand||21 Jaden Mickey||OR 3 Houston Griffith||OR 11 Ramon Henderson||6 Clarence Lewis|
|-||-||-||90 Alexander Ehrensberger||OR 10 Prince Kollie||-||-||-||-||-||-|
No changes were made on the defensive depth chart. I’m still trying to see the value of Houston Griffith seeing as many reps as he did. Freshman Benjamin Morrison played really well in his debut, and his classmate Jaden Mickey saw plenty of time as well.
2022 Depth Chart: Special Teams
|92 Zac Yoakam||99 Blake Grupe||39 Jon Sot||65 Michael Vinson||39 Jon Sot||16 Brandon Joseph||25 Chris Tyree|
|14 Bryce McFerson||92 Zac Yoakam||14 Bryce McFerson||44 Alex Peitch||14 Bryce McFerson||OR 29 Matt Salerno||4 Lorenzo Styles|
|-||-||-||-||-||-||0 Braden Lenzy|
Freshman Bryce McFerson was supposed to handle kickoff duties, but a groin pull forced Zac Yoakam up the depth chart in Columbus — and Yoakam is there again.
