BYU released its final post-spring depth chart on Wednesday, which listed sophomore Taysom Hill as the Cougars' starting quarterback.

Hill beat out fellow sophomore Ammon Olsen after a strong spring practice. Hill passed for 425 yards, rushed for 336 yards and scored eight total touchdowns in six games last season as a true freshman. Hill injured his knee against Utah State in October and missed the remainder of the year.
