In terms of kicking extra points and field goals, Richt said Blair Walsh is the leading candidate. All of Georgia¹s kickers, he said, are working on kickoffs.
Incumbent Brian Mimbs remains atop the depth chart at punter, but Richt noted that Drew Butler has shown improvement. Said Richt, ³I like how Brian is hitting the ball. He catches it, gets it off and has great hang time. And we are comfortable with how Drew is punting right now.²
³Logan wants to help us win,² Richt said of his third-string quarterback. ³He¹s a gunner on punt coverage, a punt returner and a safety on kickoff coverage. He wants to play and help us win.
³I think Knowshon could be pretty good (at punt returner). I don¹t know if we¹ll pull the trigger, but he¹s working there. Knowshon will do anything you ask him to do. You want to put the best players at every position across the board, including on special teams.²
