We now have a better sense of who the front runners are for the starting lineups for Gamecock football this fall. South Carolina released their preseason depth chart the week of SEC Media Days.

Other than the obvious returners to the team who take over their starting spots from last year Columbia native and Richland Northeast product TJ Brunson is listed as a starting linebacker. Newcomer OrTre Smith is listed as a backup and will be in the wide receiver rotation.

After debuting at number four and making the number change down the stretch Jake Bentley will wear 19 this season. Rico Dowdle will wear number five and he'll share carries with returner AJ Turner and Ty'son Williams, the sophomore back out of Sumter.

Check out the full chart below.
