Overall, not too many surprises.  Last year's starter at running back, Dustin Garrison, is now third on the depth chart.  He is still recovering from the injury he sustained during practice prior to the Orange Bowl.  However, I wouldn't look into that too much, as multiple backs will receive time in that backfield.

The only freshmen starters are inside receiver Jordan Thompson and safety Karl Joseph, both early enrollees.  Thompson has been on the radar since the spring game and Joseph has really impressed throughout spring and summer practice.
