Blog: Georgia preseason report: Practice No. 2

*Check out anticipated freshman linebacker in the video above Lorenzo Carter.

Georgia is back on the practice field for its second preseason workout Saturday afternoon.

It’s a tad bit warmer than yesterday but comfortable with temps in the lower 80s.

Not much to glean of major significance in the 15-minute viewing period in another day in shorts and helmets.

If you are keeping tabs of the resodded grass fields, the new “lay and play” grass was installed after arriving on several trucks yesterday. The sprinklers are going and it looks to be ready next week as planned.

One impression from today’s practice on the FieldTurf fields: The defensive backs are getting coached up.

And not just by coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, who coaches them directly.

Grad assistant Kelin Johnson and quality control assistant George Helow offered some words of instruction about going up to get the ball at its highest point.

Pruitt was working with the cornerbacks and left to chime in with the safeties on pointers to avoid pass interference calls.

Mark Richt was hanging out with the outside linebackers, an impressive looking group. He reminded Leonard Floyd and Lorenzo Carter to “finish” when they took their turn in a drill.

I didn’t notice any change in the order of the defensive linemen.

Brice Ramsey was working as the No. 2 quarterback in one drill behind Hutson Mason. Ramey and Faton Bauta are competing to be the backup.

Receiver Jonathan Rumph showed good acceleration on one route I saw and Justin Scott-Wesley seemed to be moving a bit faster than yesterday.

Had hoped to speak to Scott-Wesley today, but requests for him and new receiver Brendan Langley were turned down.

Georgia had a rollicking good time in Little Rock (well, certainly in the first half), picking up its second straight SEC road win in pretty convincing fashion again.... Full Story
