Missouri coach Gary Pinkel revealed his depth chart at quarterback Wednesday during the Southeastern Conference spring coaches teleconference.
After the Tigers’ spring practices ended Saturday with the annual Black & Gold Game, Pinkel said senior James Franklin would be listed No. 1 followed by redshirt freshman Maty Mauk and redshirt sophomore Corbin Berkstresser on the post-spring depth chart.
Franklin, who completed nine of 15 passes for 80 yards in the spring game, made eight starts in an injury-plagued junior season in which he threw for 1,562 passing yards and 10 touchdowns.
Mauk completed only six of 17 passes for 72 yards and two interceptions and Berkstresser, who backed up Franklin last season and made four starts, completed nine of 18 passes for 93 yards.
