2012 Penn State Football Depth Chart Released

With all that has went down with Penn State over the last year, few rosters have fluctuated more than the Nittany Lions'. On Monday, the team released its depth chart for its first game.

Penn State lost three starters to transfer, and the team has officially named their replacements. Taking over for Silas Redd (who left for USC) at running back is sophomore Bill Belton.

Kicker/punter Anthony Fera (who left for Texas) wlll be replaced by sophomore Sam Ficken at kicker and junior Alex Butterworth at punter.

Wide receiver Justin Brown bolted for Oklahoma, and the three starting receivers listed atop the depth chart are sophomore Allen Robinson, junior Shawney Kersey and sophomore Alex Kenney. The depth chart indicates, though, that there are many options at receiver.

The starting quarterback who will guide Penn State through what should be a tough season is senior Matt McGloin.
