Golden releases Miami's latest depth chart

Miami head coach Al Golden released the team's latest depth chart on Tuesday. Among the notable changes for the Hurricanes:

— Mike James now occupies the top spot at tailback after recording 124 yards of total offense in the team’s first scrimmage. Lamar Miller and Storm Johnson sit at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, after being listed as co-starters on the previous depth chart.

— The prized recruit from the Class of 2010, Seantrel Henderson, has dropped to second-team left tackle after sharing the top spot with Malcolm Bunche.

— Blake Ayles has assumed the top spot ahead of John Calhoun at tight end.

— Adewale Ojomo has regained a starting spot at defensive end after recording six tackles (four for a loss) and two sacks in the scrimmage.

— Jordan Futch is now listed as a co-No. 1 at middle linebacker with Jimmy Gaines after leading all defenders with nine tackles in Saturday’s scrimmage.

Golden, when asked about the personnel changes:

“One of the things I told the coaches on Sunday when I came in and watched the whole [film of Saturday’s scrimmage] was that I want the depth chart to reflect performance, not potential. A lot of coaches get fired based on waiting for someone with potential to develop. I want it based on performance. And clearly there are battles within that depth chart that we see every day.”
