Bulldogs WR Terry seeing time at safety

Has Georgia found future help for its struggling secondary from its offense?

Freshman Tramel Terry, a receiver up to this point for the Bulldogs, worked strictly with the safeties early in practice on Monday during the portion open to the media. At one point he was getting instruction from junior safety Corey Moore.

No word yet if that’s just a look-see during Gator bowl practices or an intended permanent move.

“Excited about being on the dark side,” Terry tweeted Monday evening. “I can tell it won’t be easy tho ready for big bruh @brambo18 (Bacarri Rambo) to get back down To pick his brain.”

The 6-foot-, 184-pound Terry is redshirting this season after sustaining a torn ACL in his left knee in a high school all-star game.

Georgia coach Mark Richt has called South Carolina’s 2012 Mr. Football “a very multi-talented guy,” but that was thought to be as receiver or running back for the Goose Creek product.

Richt on Saturday said Terry is “a very good athlete,” but didn’t mention a position switch. Richt will next be available to address Terry at defensive back on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, safety Shaquille Fluker was not at practice on Monday and an announcement of a transfer could be coming this week.

The junior college transfer was away from the team to return to his home in Meridian, Miss., near the end of the regular season. He has not played this season. He’s been listed on the injury report during the season with an undisclosed illness.
