Center of attention

Sure there's a QB competition, but what about the guy snapping the ball?

Replacing David Andrews at center isn’t exactly a snap so far for Georgia.

Actually, sophomore Isaiah Wynn has seemed to fare well in the spot except for the shotgun snap on occasion, like in the first drive of Saturday’s G-Day game.

“It was just a bad snap,” said Wynn, who moved from guard to center after last season “I just didn’t get the ball down. …No matter how many snaps you get, you can always get more and get better at that. I look forward to improving on that.”

Wynn delivered a ball that sailed over quarterback Brice Ramsey’s head for an 18-yard loss to set up a third-and-33 from the 2-yard line for the Red team.

“That snap is kind of what it looked like week one,” coach Mark Richt said. “We were having too many of those at the beginning and the next two weeks he really settled down where they weren’t just perfect but they weren’t out of the frame of the quarterback. Obviously we’ve got to get sharper in that area.”

Coaches are planning to give starting left guard Brandon Kublanow 11-on-11 work at center this week in practice.

Redshirt senior Hunter Long has provided “a calming effect” for the No. 2 offensive line, Richt said, because he understands all the calls. “I’m not counting Hunter out of the race either,” Richt said. “(Wynn's) kind of like the quarterbacks. He has the talent base, he has the skill set, needs the experience. He’s got to prove he can handle the responsibility of that job.”
