2. Charleston Southern’s leading wideouts
The next player Georgia football must circle for Saturday’s game isn’t a player, but the Bucs four wideouts in Garris Schwarting, Cayden Jordan, Geoffrey Wall and Demetrius Jones.
These four guys have at least 370 yards on the season, and all have caught at least one touchdown.
Schwarting is the Bucs’ second-leading wideout, but he leads the team in touchdowns. He has 45 catches for 510 yards and five scores on the season, averaging 56.67 yards a game and 11.33 yards a catch.
Last week against Gardner-Webb, Schwarting recorded two catches for 67 yards, and he is known to do some return stuff as well. He had one punt return for 19 yards against last week’s Bulldogs, so Georgia must prepare for him to do both.
Jordan is the lone guy in front of him, who has 52 catches for 746 yards and one score. Last week, Jordan had five catches for 92 yards.
While he has better numbers, Schwarting is proving to be better at getting in the endzone for Charleston Southern. The graduate student is a veteran who can be a trusty target for Jack Chambers if he needs to get it out quick on this defense.
However, while Georgia must prep for Schwarting, they must know that four guys can be explosive, so this secondary should be ready. Wall and Jones have also both have been essential playmakers for the Bucs.
Wall has 62 catches on the year for 500 yards and two scores, averaging eight yards a touch. Jones has 30 catches for 370 yards and four touchdowns, averaging 12.33 yards a catch.
Both of these guys scored touchdowns on Gardner-Webb last week too. Wall led the team with 12 catches for 104 yards and one score, while Jones had one six-yard touchdown catch.
Georgia’s secondary needs to be ready for these four guys because they will try and get the best of them. There need to be no silly mistakes from the Dawgs this week. Instead, play aggressive yet smart football. This secondary should handle this unit, but it’s hard to overlook them when they all can score for the Bucs.
