The first depth chart of the season out and it's brought to you by the word "transfer"

Four starters and four backups transferred in from other schools in the off season. The most publicized is Grant Rohach but I don't believe you can understate starting right guard David Goldsby and his backup Connor Morehart.

Goldsby is a transfer from Ellsworth CC and Morehart came in from Nassau CC.

Another new name is Kamathi Holsey who is new from Independence CC last season. Had 63 receptions last season at ICC.

On the defensive side of the ball I can't wait to see what Joe Keels can do. He's backing up Crawford but I suspect against Albany he will get a good amount of work.

Khalil Hodge, a transfer from the City College of San Fransico will start at linebacker and Tim Roberts from Fullerton will start at free safety.

A once-over shows me a team with a very deep front seven and some good leadership in the defensive secondary. The defense should be fine.

The linebackers are so deep that you have Brandon "Crunch" Berry and Jarrett Frankin are listed together as an "OR" on the depth chart.

On the offensive side I think the season comes down to the right side of UB's line. Having O'Hagan, Manosalvas, and Joseph from the center to the left side puts the bulk of your experience on a single side of the line.

Between Goldsby and O'Henly on the right side there is six games and one start as a Bull.

I really like seeing Johnathan Hawkins as the kickoff returner. It's been a long time since the Bulls have had a consistent threat on returns and Hawkins may have what it takes to give UB better starting field position this year.
