OSU SPRING DEPTH CHART RELEASED

COLUMBUS — Ohio State released its 2010 spring football depth chart Monday.

There are a few surprises to note:

— Sophomore wide receiver Duron Carter is listed as the No. 2 receiver behind senior Dane Sanzenbacher, even though he isn't eligible academically. OSU head coach Jim Tressel even stated on the first day of spring camp that Carter would not being doing any football related activities this spring.

— The chart reads that senior Brandon Saine and junior Daniel Herron are co-starters at tailback. Not a big surprise there, but having redshirt freshman Jaamal Berry at No. 5 behind Jermil Martin is a bit of a head scratcher to this reporter, since Berry has performed quite well and Martin has yet to participate in drills this spring.

Listed below is the complete depth chart ... (All OSU player photos by The Buckeye Times' Darla Dunkle-Hudnell)
