20 newcomers on Tide depth chart

The Bama Beat provides this view of the depth chart against Clemson: “a whopping 20 members of the 2008 signing class were listed. Three newcomers — receiver Julio Jones, JUCO nose tackle Terrence Cody and inside linebacker Don’ta Hightower — were named starters. Receiver B.J. Scott was the second-string slot receiver behind Mike McCoy, who is also on the outside, making Scott something of a starter as well.”
