New, 24 comments

There aren't many change for the 'Horns heading into the second week of the season, though the depth chart does now go three deep at some positions.

As the Texas Longhorns try to get healthy in preparation for this weekend's game against the California Golden Bears, head coach Charlie Strong released the depth chart for the game:

One thing that is notable is the fact that the depth chart goes beyond the two deep for the first time. Other than that, the only major note of interest is that senior Sheroid Evans is listed first as a co-starter at cornerback with sophomore Holton Hill, who has been rather out of the rotation, but was listed as the starter there for the UTEP game.

It's also difficult to account for whether the injured players who are listed here will all actually play, though Strong sounded confident after the UTEP game that he would get most of them back.
