    Since 2005, Wake has started 9, 7, 7, 10, 11, 11, 10, 10, 8, 8, 7, 7 and 6 white starters. In 2018 they look to potentially jump up to 7 white starters depending on the QB and RB situations.

    By all accounts RB Cade Carney is healthy and primed for a big season. Freshman QB Sam Hartman looks to be leading the compeition with a quotaback for the QB spot. As of now on defense no white athletes are projected on the two deep.

    Players to look out for include TE Brandon Chapman, LB Jake Simpson, S Luke Masterson

    QB - Sam Hartman **in a position battle
    RB – Cade Carney ** in a position battle
    WR - Alex Bachman
    TE - Jake Freudenthal
    C - Ryan Anderson
    RG - Patrick Osterhage
    RT - Jake Bensinger

    Carney started as a freshman a couple years ago right out of the gate.....Much like Epstein did last year.....Then kept getting dinged up......I’ve seen him second on all depth charts....
    Let’s hope he stays healthy and gets lots of carries......

    Thanks Leo.

    Never a contender Wake, like Duke, generally don't have as many white players as one would expect. Still zero white starters on D is alarming. Again we can only hope some white players emerge as the season wears on.

    At least the offense has some potential with RB Carney and WR Bachman who I think will play a bigger role this season.

    A bit hum drum but overall we have seen worse teams than Wake Forest. If this was the layout for an SEC team they would move to the front of the line in that conference.

    They also have the opportunity of fielding a significant white RB and solid white WR on the field at the same time, a true rarity in college sports these days so that alone boosts this team's stock.

    Looks like QB Hartmans main quotaback competition, Kendall Hinton, has been moved to wide receiver, though another quotaback is the new number two on the depth chart.
