No real shockers as coach Steve Sarkisian and his staff released the 2010 opening two-deep chart leading up to the game Saturday at Brigham Young University.
Some things that caught my eye:
• Nate Fellner has apparently won the free safety job over Will Shamburger – although Shamburger should play a ton.
• With much speculation about who would start opposite Desmond Trufant at cornerback, Quinton Richardson held off Adam Long for the job.
• Despite De’Shon Matthews having a stellar fall camp, the starting right defensive-end spot went to Everrette Thompson, who is expected to be less than 100 percent from a heel injury until September.
• The swap last week on the offensive line was moving projected starting right guard Mykenna Ikehara to backup center, and elevating Gregory Christine to starting right guard.
• Sarkisian did not reveal his hand on naming a backup quarterback. He lists Keith Price OR Nick Montana.
• Johri Fogerson was listed ahead of Jesse Callier as the No. 2 tailback behind Chris Polk.
• Because of James Johnson’s nagging ankle injury, senior D’Andre Goodwin’s good camp was rewarded with a starting nod at receiver.
