Countdown to kickoff: 2

From now until kickoff in Arlington, Texas, we'll be counting down the days before Alabama and Michigan get the season started. Today, we move to No. 2 and what it means to UA football. See all the previous editions here.

Alabama sophomore DeAndrew White isn't the only receiver trying to fill the shoes of those that came before him. The wide receiver who wears No. 2 on his jersey played some his freshman year, hauling in 14 catches for 151 yards and two touchdowns as a reserve.

Now that four of the top pass-catchers from a season ago are gone, it's up to White and fellow veterans Kevin Norwood, Kenny Bell and Christion Jones to keep producing. Freshmen Amari Cooper, Cyrus Jones and Marvin Shinn could play a role as well.

When Alabama released its depth chart on Tuesday it looked like this:
All seven receivers have combined for four career starts, 45 catches and four touchdowns. But what they lack in experience, they make up for in talent.

"It's more spread out than it's ever been here," quarterback AJ McCarron said. "We have a really good group of receivers. All the guys can run. All the guys can make plays. I'm definitely excited to get out there and see what we've got Sept. 1."
