Spring practice is an opportunity for coaching staffs all across the country to evaluate what they have on their current roster, identify areas of concern, and place players in as many game-like situations as possible.
Saturday, the Georgia Bulldogs take the field inside of Sanford Stadium for the first time since they played host to the Mississippi State Bulldogs in quarterback JT Daniels' Georgia debut.
Today, several new faces are set to make their debut for Georgia Football.
CB Kelee Ringo
Georgia fans have been waiting on this one for a while. The nation's No. 1-ranked cornerback and SI All-American in the 2020 signing class, Ringo's freshman season was over before it even started. As soon as he enrolled at Georgia last summer, he underwent shoulder surgery and accepted a redshirt for the 2020 season.
So, as Georgia takes the field Saturday, Georgia fans will get their first look at who they hope to be the next great corner for Georgia.
WR Adonai Mitchell
There's one true freshman on the first-team offensive roster that has been released by Georgia: Adonai Mitchell. Mitchell comes to Georgia from Houston, Tex., by way of Tennessee high-school football. Upon signing with Georgia, Mitchell was a player that seemed to be lesser known.
That is no longer the case. Mitchell has flashed elite-level route running as well as late operation throughout camp. He will receive ample opportunity today considering the state of the wide receiver room.
WR Ladd McConkey
McConkey is not a new face in the program. Like Ringo, he is a redshirt freshman and a member of the heralded 2020 signing class. However, unlike Ringo, he wasn't injured a year ago; he was simply buried down the depth chart. With the injuries having mounted at the wide receiver position, he very well could flash today.
OLB Chaz Chambliss
Any player that continues to have the positive buzz surrounding his work ethic that Chambliss has had from the moment he arrived on campus, is destined to be a fan favorite. Saturday, fans will finally see what sources have told Dawgs Daily for months.
The outside linebacker from Carrollton High School has a relentless motor. He will show a flash of effort and physicality inside of Sanford Stadium today.
OL Amarius Mims
Dylan Fairchild and Jared Wilson aren't on campus yet and Micah Morris is rehabbing from offseason shoulder surgery. That leaves Mims as the only offensive lineman from the 2021 signing class on campus. It's fitting that he's the crown jewel of the signing class.
At 6-foot-7, 315 pounds, Mims already has the body to play in the SEC. However, he still has to add strength to his frame this summer. Today is about ensuring that he continues to look the part even as a true freshman.
