The questions as to who will be starting for the Georgia Bulldogs in their season opener against the Clemson Tigers can now be put to rest (for a minute), as Mark Richt has released the depth chart for the Aug. 30 game at Sanford Stadium, per a story from OnlineAthens.com.
One of the big surprises you might notice is that All-American linebacker Ramik Wilson is listed as second team behind sophomore Tim Kimbrough. This isn’t to say that Wilson has lost his starting job, but his absence from drills and practices (rumored to be due to a concussion) may be the underlying reason.
As the depth chart is only on paper, and hasn’t always known to be 100 percent reliable, take that for what it’s worth. It wouldn’t be surprising to see Wilson out there for the first defensive series.
The cornerback battle between JUCO transfer Shattle Fenteng and Devin Bowman seems to be leaning Bowman’s way right now, as he’s listed as the starting boundary corner. Bowman had been dealing with some hamstring issues, but Fenteng was certainly impressive during his camp work.
The rest of the secondary has some newcomers as well, but looks to be more solid than many had thought.
The offense there were no real surprises listed. Both Faton Bauta and Brice Ramsey are listed as backup quarterback, so nothing has apparently been decided there. Same for starting tight end, which lists Jay Rome or Quayvon Hicks.
Special teams return men were listed as Reggie Davis being the No. 1 punt returner ahead of freshman Isaiah McKenzie, who was listed as the co-kickoff return man with Sony Michel.
