Starting O-line Spots Still ‘Up For Grabs’

ATHENS - When Kolton Houston talks about Georgia’s No. 1 unit now on the offensive line, he considers more than just five players.

“There’s a lot of us now,” he said. “It’s just a revolving door.”

Houston is working at right tackle and left guard with the starting group, he said.

Sophomore Brandon Kublanow is getting first-team left guard work. When Houston is at left guard, Watts Dantzler moves into the right tackle spot.

Left tackle John Theus, center David Andrews and right guard Greg Pyke seem poised in their starting spots. Tackle Mark Beard and guard Isaiah Wynn are competing in the rotation.

“Anything is up for grabs right now really,” Kublanow said. “We won’t really lock it down until after this next scrimmage.”

Georgia is expected to scrimmage next on Saturday.  

This and that

Georgia star Todd Gurley likes what he’s seen from the tailback group this preseason. “I feel we’ve improved a lot as a unit as far as finishing runs,” Gurley said. Freshmen Sony Michel and Nick Chubb “look just like me and Keith (Marshall) just doing the same thing we’ve been doing, pressing tracks, hitting it full-speed, just bring it every day.

Georgia wrapped up its fourth and final two-a-days on Wednesday with morning and night practices. The team practices again Thursday afternoon.
