There are nine true freshmen on The Citadel's two-deep depth chart heading into this week's football season opener against Coastal Carolina, although none of the knobs are in starting roles.

The four rookies on the offensive depth chart include tackle Derrick Freeland and guard Javion Duncan; quarterback Dominique Allen; and fullback Isiaha Smith.

Of those four, Smith seems the most likely to see the playing field right away. Offensive coordinator Brent Thompson, who also coaches B-backs, said the 5-10, 225-pounder is likely to be used in short-yardage situations.

On defense, the five freshmen in the two-deep include nose tackle Jonathan King; defensive end Travis Johnson; bandit linebacker Israel Battle; cornerback Kalik Williams; and safety Josh Massey. Massey, a 5-11, 190-pounder from Rock Hill, has made a big impression with some big hits in camp.

Also of note: Former quarterback Cam Jackson is listed at slotback along with Jake Stenson and Craig Miller; receivers Brandon Eakins and Jorian Jordan are listed at kickoff return; and receiver DeAndre Schoultz will return punts.
