Keenan Allen, Marc Anthony Earn Starting Roles At Wide Receiver And Cornerback

32
We'll have at least two new starters on opening day Saturday. The star of the 2010 recruiting class, Allen beat out Alex Lagemann, Jeremy Ross and Michael Calvin to earn the second starting spot on the other side of Marvin Jones. In a slight (but not huge) surprise, sophomore Marc Anthony beat out Steve Williams and will start alongside either Darian Hagan or Bryant Nnabuife at cornerback against UC Davis. Anthony had been picked out by Tedford as having a strong spring camp, and it appears he's continued that play into the fall. "Marc Anthony has had one of the most solid camps," Tedford said. "He made spectacular plays, he did a good job of tackling in the open field and he did a good job on pass defense."
