Malcolm Mitchell was working only at receiver on Tuesday and is slated to practice at cornerback today.
‚ÄúI thought it went well,‚Äù Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said. ‚ÄúObviously a little rusty. Hadn‚Äôt worked at receiver hardly any, maybe 15 minutes since we opened camp, but he‚Äôs a talented kid and we‚Äôre going to give his ability a chance to make some plans in the game.‚Äù
Coach Mark Richt expects Mitchell‚Äôs offensive snaps to increase Saturday and his defensive snaps to decrease.
‚ÄúWe‚Äôre pretty much in synch in the passing game,‚Äù Bobo said. ‚ÄúI think he‚Äôs going to add to the passing game, but at the same time we‚Äôre not just going to throw him out there full time. We‚Äôve still got to be in synch.‚Äù
Georgia‚Äôs receivers are welcoming Mitchell back to offense.
‚ÄúThat‚Äôs just another smooth weapon we‚Äôve got in our arsenal,‚Äù receiver Tavarres King said. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs scary what we can do out wide.‚Äù
Georgia‚Äôs receivers have produced four 100-yard receiving games by three different players.
‚ÄúMalcolm coming, that‚Äôs going to add just more firepower to our offense,‚Äù receiver Michael Bennett said.
Mitchell has two catches for 43 yards in limited offensive work this season.
