SALT LAKE CITY — With Utah's season-opener against North Dakota three days away, there is a depth chart for the Utes.

Here's some observations from the depth chart the school released Monday:

— The Utes have four wide receivers listed on the depth chart, with starters including grad transfer Darren Carrington II, junior Raelon Singleton, sophomore Siaosi Wilson and redshirt freshman Samson Nacua. Singleton is the team's leading returner in receiving yards.

— Senior Jordan Howard is listed as the backup running back to sophomore Zack Moss. Absent on the depth chart at the position are sophomore Devonta'e Henry-Cole and senior Troy McCormick, who moved back to the position after Armand Shyne went down with a long-term injury during fall camp.

— There are few surprises on the defensive side of the ball, but a two-deep is set at the cornerback positions. Junior Casey Huges is listed as the starter at left cornerback, with converted wide receiver Kenric Young behind him. At right cornerback, sophomore Julian Blackmon gets the nod, with true freshman Jaylon Johnson backing him up. Also at nickelback, senior Boobie Hobbs is the starter and sophomore Terrell Burgess the backup.

— At kicker, both freshman Chayden Johnston and transfer Matt Gay are listed as co-starters, leaving the question open about who will be kicking field goals and extra points come Thursday. Johnston is a recently returned missionary and Gay a former UVU soccer player.
