Carson graduated from Parkview High School in 2012, and eventually made his way to Kansas to start his football career. While the offer from his home state school was essentially a dream come true, Carson has not yet given the Dawgs a verbal commitment. Carson also has offers from Cincinnati, Colorado State, Iowa State and Utah State.
Due to the fact Carson has to be back at Butler on Sunday, this was a short trip to Athens. Stay tuned with Dawg Post for more info on how Carson’s decision plays out.
2. Let’s talk about outside linebackers – new outside linebackers at that. First, freshman Keyon Brown had a little trouble picking up what Kevin Sherrer was putting down in Saturday’s practice. Lorenzo Carter, on the other hand, looked very, very comfortable with Sherrer’s instructions. This is exactly what Mark Richt was referring to when he spoke so highly of Carter on Friday.
Not to worry, though. After a short explanation and a moment to take it all in, Brown was doing just fine his second round through.
3. This was just one drill, so keep this in mind. Here’s a rough sketch of whom Georgia had in its first group of offensive linemen (left to right): Mark Beard (LT), Kolton Houston (LG), David Andrews (C), Greg Pyke (RG), John Theus (RT).
From what we saw, Pyke stood out the most. As of now, he looks like the most athletic player on the field in terms of offensive linemen.
4. The quarterbacks and receivers looked to be fairly in sync today. At one point I heard Mike Bobo tell his quarterbacks they knew a lot, but ‘wouldn’t listen.’ He doesn’t like it when you don’t listen. Brice Ramsey was behind starter Hutson Mason in every drill. The two of them, combined with Faton Bauta and Jacob Park, took the majority of the snaps. Walk-on quarterback Sam Vaughn was the only one who seemed to have any real trouble out there. He was just a bit nervous, though. I’d say Bobo got through to him.
5. Jeb Blazevich looked great today. Georgia needs a tight end, and Jay Rome is still on the mend. Blazevich can catch, he can run – he can basically do it all. Of course he’s a freshman and he’s still taking it all in, but he’s got the physicality already. That’s a good sign. Richt was getting on Jordan Davis, but in a good way. He just wants the redshirt freshman out of Thomson, Ga. to go up and get the ball. If he uses his height at 6-foot-4, he could be a problem to deal with for a defense.
