Arizona’s depth chart continues to be a weekly storyline.
As expected, Brandon Dawkins started at quarterback on Saturday even though he and Anu Solomon were separated by the word ‘or’ on the two-deep.
Samajie Grant was alone atop the running back depth chart. The 5-foot-8-inch, 180-pound Grant is a wide receiver by trade.
Matt Morin — who was the team’s third-string tight end just a few weeks ago and played quarterback against USC — was listed as the starter at a newly created “running back/fullback” position.
Malcolm Holland was listed as the backup to Jace Whittaker at cornerback. Holland is a redshirt freshman walk-on who spent four years in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization — playing with future stars like Corey Seager and Julio Urias — before switching to football.
Cedric Peterson started at the wide receiver position vacated by Grant. Peterson is a redshirt freshman with three career catches.
DaVonte’ Neal took over as the lead kick returner. Neal, a senior, had spent most of the season as a starting cornerback before losing his spot to Whittaker.
And Christian Boettcher made another start at left guard.
