Nicholls vs South Alabama Live

South Alabama releases depth chart for 2022 opener vs. Nicholls

Just ahead of its Saturday season-opener vs. Nicholls, South Alabama has released its first depth chart for the 2022 season.


There were a handful of surprises among the starting 22, including Ole Miss transfer Jalen Jordan as the first-team Rover. Senior C.J. Thompson, listed as the second-teamer, took most of the No. 1 reps in the spring and in preseason camp.

Finally intact, South Alabama backs ready to run in 2022

Other notables are former walk-on Reggie Smith as the first-team right guard ahead of several more experienced players. Anterrious Gray, the Jaguars’ primary starter at right guard last season, is now listed as the second-team left guard behind Florida State transfer Dontae Lucas.

Junior-college transfer La’Damian Webb is listed as the first-team running back, ahead of returning starter Terrion Avery. Webb missed much of preseason camp with foot and hand injuries suffered in the offseason, but returned to full-speed work last week.

One other intriguing spot is free safety, where three-year starter Keith Gallmon was lost for the season with a torn pectoral muscle. Kansas State transfer Marvin Martin is now listed with the first-team, with junior Jaden Voisin as the second-teamer.

Returning starter Diego Guajardo is listed as the first-team place-kicker ahead of Jacob Meeks, a Texas Tech transfer. Meeks is listed as the first-team kickoff man.

There are nine newcomers listed among the starters, four on offense, four on defense and Meeks among the specialists. The offensive newcomers expected to start are Lucas, Webb, Jacksonville State transfer PJ Mixon at left tackle and Toledo transfer Carter Bradley at quarterback, while the defensive newcomers listed as first-teamers are Martin, Jordan, Ole Miss transfer Jamar Richardson at field cornerback and Indiana transfer James Miller at Mike linebacker.

There are three true freshmen on the two deep, all listed as second-teamers: Ricky Fletcher at field cornerback behind Richardson, Tremel States-Jones at Husky (nickel) safety behind returning starter Yam Banks and Braylon McReynolds as kick returner behind veteran Caullin Lacy.
