After 15 spring practices, he didn’t shy away when asked Thursday to name which early enrollees made a statement or look they may be ready to contribute.
“It’s hard to say, but Natrez Patrick I think he looks like he found a home anyway there,” Richt said of the Mays High product who is now playing inside linebacker after practicing on the outside. “I’m not saying he’s going to start or anything like that. I think he’s got a good body type and a good disposition to play that middle linebacker position.”
Patrick, who had eight tackles and a sack on G-Day, “probably made the biggest impression,” of the early enrollees, Richt said.
The “young safeties,” referring to Jarvis Wilson and Johnathan Abram, have been “hot and cold and have been making some plays.” Tight end Jackson Harris “has got the skillset to do well and he’s learning pretty quick.”
