4 true freshman could start for Colorado

The rebuilding University of Colorado football team could start as many as four true freshmen in its Sept. 3 season opener with Hawaii at Aloha Stadium, the Buffaloes announced today.

CU released its post-camp depth chart with freshmen at right cornerback (Greg Henderson), punter (Darragh O’Neill) and place-kicker (Will Oliver).

In addition, freshman Tyler McCulloch is listed as “co-starter” with senior Tony Clemons at a wide receiver position, CU said.

Overall, the three-deep includes five freshmen on offense, six on defense and three on special teams.

“I feel good about our two-deep and even some of our threes on the D-line,” first-year head coach Jon Embree said in a release. “Actually, I feel really good about our first 30 or 35.”
