Notes from Terps' depth chart for Saturday's game vs. James Madison

Baltimore Sun Media Group

The winners of all of the Terps’ positional battles became clear by the final week of preseason practice, but Maryland released its depth chart Monday.

Here are a few notes from the depth chart:

** Stefon Diggs will handle kickoff returns, backed up by promising redshirt freshman Taivon Jacobs. Cornerback Will Likely will be the primary punt returner.

** Junior Alvin Hill beat out senior Jeremiah Johnson for the starting cornerback job opposite Likely. Sophomore Jarrett Ross will be the Terps’ fourth cornerback.

** Highly touted freshman Damian Prince is not listed on Maryland’s two-deep. Prince worked largely with the second-team offense after switching to left guard early in camp, but redshirt freshman Mike Minter is listed as the backup to starting left guard Silvano Altamirano.

** Levern Jacobs is the No. 3 receiver behind Diggs and Deon Long. He played primarily in the slot during the Terps' scrimmage two weeks ago.

** Taivon Jacobs is listed as the top backup to Diggs at one outside receiver spot. Junior Marcus Leak is listed as the top backup to Long at the other.

** Maryland hosts James Madison in its season-opener Saturday. The Terps’ full depth chart is here.
