Tulsa Head Football Coach Bill Blankenship has released the Golden Hurricane post-spring depth chart.
Junior Cody Green, a transfer from Nebraska, was given the nod at quarterback over sophomore Kalen Henderson. “Probably the biggest separation between Cody and Kalen is the experience that Cody brings to the table having played in 17 games at Nebraska. He just seems to have a little more poise and control right now. There were certainly days that Kalen performed better and days that Cody played better. But for me, if it’s close, I like playing with a guy that has more experience and ultimately that’s probably why I decided that way,” says Blankenship.
“We absolutely feel comfortable with both Cody and Kalen. There’s no question that we’d feel good going into a game with either Cody or Kalen. I feel very confident that we have those two, and maybe two more, that we would not be afraid to be playing against Iowa State in the season opener. But, if I’m choosing right now the edge goes to Cody. I think most of that edge comes from the fact that he’s played in more games. It’s the appearance that he has. He’s a calm and poised leader,” adds Blankenship.
Blankenship also says that a pair of walk-ons, kicker Chad Levin and quarterback Stephen Rouse, have informed him of their plans to transfer.
