UConn released the depth chart for Thursday's opener against Fordham, and one of the eye-catching spots was running back. Listed with D.J. Shoemate as co-starter is redshirt freshman Lyle McCombs. Also of note is that tight ends Ryan Griffin and John Delahunt are co-starters as well.
The name some media around the program have mentioned at running back is senior Jonathan Jean-Louis, so the presence of McCombs could be seen as a surprise. But he's obviously had a good enough camp to warrant his place on the depth chart.
