Greyson Lambert is officially Virginia’s starting quarterback.
The redshirt sophomore is listed at No. 1 on the post-spring depth chart coach Mike London released Monday. Incumbent David Watford and sophomore Matt Johns are listed as battling for the backup role.
The anointing of Lambert does not come as a surprise. He was voted as one of four captains by his teammates during the spring and appointed by London to the 13-member player leadership council. He also got the bulk of the work in the Cavaliers’ spring game.
The depth chart does have surprises.
Senior Miles Gooch, with just three career receptions, is listed as the starter at the ‘Z’ wide receiver position, ahead of fellow senior Darius Jennings.
Jennings leads the returning Cavaliers with 106 career receptions.
