BYU Football Releases Depth Chart For Kansas Week

PROVO, Utah – The week four BYU football depth chart has a few changes as they gear up for their first Big 12 Conference game against the Kansas Jayhawks.

There are some notable changes on this week’s depth chart.

Official changes to starting positions

Last week, the changes were subtle ORs being removed. This week, LJ Martin takes over officially as the No. 1 running back on the depth chart. Then Tanner Wall is the number one free safety ahead of graduate senior Malik Moore.

At wide receiver, Kody Epps is no longer listed on the top line at one of the three wide receiver spots. Darius Lassiter is ahead of him. But each of the receiver spots has ORs throughout.

Along with those changes on the top line at respective positions, BYU made moves to a few backup spots.

Tyler Little is now the second-string right guard instead of Paul Maile. Maile is the starting center for BYU.

Then, on the defensive side, Ace Kaufusi moves from MACK to ROVER. That’s due to Ammon Hannemann being removed from the depth chart. Hannemann was not suited up for the first two games of the season. He didn’t make the travel roster last week at Arkansas.
