Penn State released its post-spring practice depth chart Thursday, which features a position battle at quarterback even though one of the candidates has not taken a single snap in a practice.
Incoming freshman Christian Hackenberg, whose first practice with the team will be on Aug. 5, the opening day of training camp, is considered neck and neck with Tyler Ferguson, a junior college transfer who participated in the Nittany Lions' entire spring practice.
There is one other position battle shown on the depth chart, at safety, where senior Malcolm Willis, who has started 17 games in his career with the Nittany Lions, is listed as dead even with junior Ryan Keiser.
The Lions did some juggling in the defensive backfield. The other safety spot is being manned by junior Adrian Amos, who moved over from cornerback, while sophomore Trevor Williams, who played wide receiver last season, is a starting cornerback.
