Malzahn reveals depth chart

Posted: Updated:
AUBURN, Ala. -

Gus Malzahn announced his first depth chart as Auburn head coach on Wednesday morning.

What he did not announce was a starting quarterback.

"It's a dead heat up to this point," Malzahn said. "Kiehl Frazier and Jonathan Wallace, we gave them equal reps throughout the spring, and towards the end of the spring we were able to evaluate them better. Both of those guys are capable of running our offense."

Malzahn also dodged a hypothetical question of who would start if the Tigers had a game Saturday, saying, "Thankfully, we don't have a game Saturday."

Frazier and Wallace are both on the same line with the "or" designation. Also, at running back, Tre Mason, Cameron Artis-Payne and Corey Grant are all listed as first-teamers. All other positions have a starter designated, but Malzahn stressed this was far from a final copy.

"Everybody coming in at every position will have a chance to start," Malzahn said. "We feel good about a lot of these guys we signed having a chance to play. Doesn't make any difference whether it's the running back, the quarterback or whatever, so all positions will be open."
