What we learned this Spring: Let’s start with what we know – David Andrews is the starting center, and for good reason. The Johns Creek, Ga. native has put in the work in the silver britches over the past four years, and he didn’t stop in the spring.
What we’re not 100 percent sure on yet are the left and right guard spots. Left guard Kublanow and Right guard Pyke are the frontrunners for those spots right now, but as we all know, Will Friend is always game for a little competition and flexibility amongst his interior linemen. Pyke made a strong push toward the end of spring practice, and when someone asked Friend who was standing out to him on the line, he typically responded with the name Greg Pyke.
Backups: Kublanow and Pyke are holding down the spots right now, but senior Zach DeBell will be someone to keep an eye on as the season approaches. The junior spent a good deal of the spring with the first-teamers, but was replaced by Kublanow just prior to G Day. Senior Next, Watts Dantzler hasn’t always been a household name for Georgia. The 6-foot-7, 307-pound senior out of Dalton, Ga. needs to show Friend something. Dantzler needs to use his size to his advantage, and more importantly to the offense’s advantage. This is a fairly unpredictable spot to call in terms of starters – Friend won’t say much anytime soon either.
