Football fields in college football were essentially quiet last spring. The overwhelming majority of football programs across the country went without a vital evaluation and development period normally on the calendar.
Now, Georgia is more than halfway through its 2021 spring practice schedule ahead of a highly anticipated fall season ahead.
Saturday, Georgia will have its first of three spring scrimmages inside Sanford Stadium. Practice is not open to the media, however, we will be providing updates from the scrimmage as they come in from sources.
What to Expect
Typically, a Saturday scrimmage during spring practice will include team stretching, individual work with the position coaches to get warmed up and jump straight to competition periods.
There will be 1-on-1s between offensive and defensive linemen, cornerbacks and wide receivers, and linebackers and running backs before continuing to work the way up to full 11-on-11 scrimmage play.
Fast. Physical. Competitive.
Today's practice is expected to take place in front of the families of the players only according to sources. Practice is expected to begin around noon inside Sanford Stadium.
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 group.
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 their areas of need.
