Malcom Mitchell is brushing up on his receiving skills even though the sophomore has practiced at cornerback this preseason.
‚ÄúI run a couple of routes after practice, catch a couple of passes,‚Äù said Mitchell, who had 45 catches for 665 yards last season.
Georgia coach Mark Richt said that Mitchell works after practice on wide receiver fundamentals with receivers coach Tony Ball while the defense does conditioning.
‚ÄúSome days a quarterback will stick around, throw a few routes with him,‚Äù Richt said.
Richt said he will talk to offensive coordinator Mike Bobo about what the plan for Mitchell will be for Buffalo on Sept. 1.
‚ÄúI think he‚Äôll get some offensive snaps Game 1,‚Äù Richt said, ‚Äúbut how many and exactly how much we‚Äôre going to try to practice with him and perfect with him, I don‚Äôt know that yet.‚Äù
Mitchell has a good grasp of much of the offense.
‚ÄúI remember all the plays from last year,‚Äù Mitchell said. ‚ÄúThey just can‚Äôt call one of the ones that they recently made up.‚Äù
