Saturday was the first of three intrasquad scrimmages for the University of Georgia football program this spring.
There's been a heavy rotation at almost every position group on the team. According to sources, the coaching staff is rotating younger players in spurts to allow them looks with and against the 1s during the spring practice sessions. There was a lot of the same on Saturday.
Defensive back will be the group to watch closely today, as well as the wide receiver group. Georgia has room on its roster to make additions via the transfer portal, and these scrimmages will go a long way in identifying areas of need.
With George Pickens going down during spring practice with a torn ACL and Jermaine Burton suffering a hyperextended knee, Georgia's wide receiver room is in need of some young players to step up. One of those young players, Justin Robinson, has been doing exactly that. According to sources, he caught multiple back-shoulder throws from JT Daniels during the scrimmage portion of practice and took several corners deep during 1on1 work.
Lovasea Carroll entered the Georgia program as a running back, and before he even had a chance to take a snap in the backfield for Georgia, he's been moved to cornerback out of necessity. Sources say that Carroll had an excellent day during the scrimmage at corner and absolutely looks the part.
Carson Beck had a relatively quiet freshman season in Athens. Now, entering his redshirt freshmen year, he's been the talk of the quarterback room so far this offseason. Beck had another great day during the scrimmage and appears to be the leader in the clubhouse for the title of QB2. Freshman Brock Vandagriff made several plays with his legs during Saturday's practice, which indicates the status of the PCL ligament he was rehabbing following a state championship run.
Outside linebacker Chazz Chambliss has earned a reputation for being one of, if not the, hardest working players on the team in just a few months on campus. And that work ethic has earned him some initial opportunities this spring. According to sources, Chambliss saw work with the second unit Saturday and looks like he belongs.
Wide receiver Adonai Mitchell continues to flash. He's an extremely gifted route-runner as a young wide receiver and also saw work with the second unit.
Cornerback Kelee Ringo was in a non-contact jersey Saturday, but was a full participant otherwise.
