Now that Christmas is officially in the rearview mirror, we can move forward with game week for the Sun Bowl between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Oregon State Beavers.

The Irish released the depth charts for the game, and with all of the transfers and opt outs... it’s a little crazy.

OFFENSE

2023 ND OFFENSE DEPTH CHART

WR LT LG C RG RT TE WR WR RB QB
WR LT LG C RG RT TE WR WR RB QB
83 Jayden Thomas 56 Charles Jagusah 78 Pat Coogan 70 Ashton Craig 74 Billy Schrauth 79 Tosh Baker 9 Eli Raridon 80 Jordan Faison 19 Jaden Greathouse 12 Jeremiyah Love 18 Steve Angeli

- - - - - - OR 38 Davis Sherwood - - 3 Gi'Bran Payne -
- - - - - - - - - OR 22 Devyn Ford -

With Sam Hartman opting out, the Irish go right down the depth chart to tab Steve Angeli as the starter at quarterback. It gets a little messier along the offensive line with freshman Charles Jagusah taking over at left tackle, while right tackle is still a toss up between Aamil Wagner and Tosh Baker. At running back, Jeremiyah Love and Jadarian Price are listed as 1A and 1B and the bulk of the carries should come between the pair. WR Matt Salerno sheds his very walk-onish #29 for #4. The wide receivers will also get help from Deion Colzie and freshman KK Smith.

DEFENSE

51 Boubacar Traore 41 Donovan Hinish 41 Donovan Hinish 51 Boubacar Traore - - - - - - OR 18 Chance Tucker

The defense wasn’t nearly as affected by transfers and opt-outs as the offense was, but there were still a few major changes. Jaylen Sneed will start at ROVER while Jack Kiser moves over to the WILL. Jayden Mickey takes over the departed Cam Hart, and will have freshman Christian Gray backing him up. Freshmen Adon Shuler and Ben Minich are now listed in the 2-deep at safety, while freshmen Boubacar Traore and Donovan Hinish fill out the defensive line rotation depth.

Special teams were mostly unaffected with the only real change is having Jordan Faison as the starting punt returner and Matt Salerno as the backup.

Cool.
