USM releases depth chart for season opener at MSU

Southern Miss released Monday its two-man depth chart for Saturday's 6:30 p.m. road game at Mississippi State.

There are no dramatic surprises here.

James Cox will work at slot receiver after playing outside last year. Junior college transfer Michael Thomas is listed as a starter at one of the outside receivers.

Right tackle continues to be up in the air with redshirt freshman Jerry Harris and junior college transfer Norman Price looking for snaps there.

Former walk-on Cole Weeks, a redshirt senior, is second on the depth chart behind sophomore Nick Mullens at quarterback.

Junior Jalen Richard is the man at running back with sophomore George Payne and freshman Ito Smith providing depth there.

Here you have it, the first game-week depth chart of the season:
