Who will replace center David Andrews?

Most of Georgia’s offensive line will be returning, with the exception of one important piece…the center.

David Andrews will leave a big hole in the middle of the line, and he won’t be easy to replace. It’s great having a player as dependable and durable as Andrews, that is, until he leaves and you realize that there’s no one with any real game experience and first team snaps in waiting.

Behind Andrews in the depth chart last season was redshirt junior Hunter Long, who would be the odds-on favorite to win the position battle this year. Other interior linemen who could get a look will be LG Brandon Kublanow and RG Greg Pyke, both of whom could be too valuable at the current spots to move under center.

All the offensive linemen coming in this year’s class have primarily played tackle, so there may not be a solution coming in the Summer either.

This is going to be a crucial area for new offensive line coach Rob Sale to focus on, as the Dawgs will also have a new quarterback behind whoever the new center ends up being.
