Taking a look at post-spring depth chart

The Utes have their post-spring depth chart finalized which has quite a few changes. Most notable is Tyler Shreve remains penciled in as the backup to Jordan Wynn.

While the coaches said there wasn't much difference between Shreve and sophomore Griff Robles, Shreve did seem to have a better grasp of Utah's offense, so it looks like he is the guy, for now.

He'll get some competition in the fall from newcomer Jon Hays. So what is in store for Robles in the future?

Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said he remains a quarterback for now, but didn't rule out moving the 6-4, 230-pound sophomore.

"He is a good athlete and is capable of playing elsewhere," Whittingham said. "But we wouldn't do that unless we had another quarterback. If we have the luxury of having another quarterback, it could be a possibility."

Whittingham can't comment on Hays, who should be here in June, so if he comes aboard as planned the Utes would have the option of testing Robles at other positions.

Also of note on the depth chart is freshman Dres Anderson is ahead of Reggie Dunn at receiver and freshman Jake Murphy is competing for the starting fullback role.

Defensively, the Kruger boys are bidding for starting spots and the Utes are expecting big things from Keith McGill and Eric Rowe, two players who will be here in the summer, since the two are listed as the candidates at free safety.

Terrell Reese, Damian Payne and others got looks at the spot during spring.
