Next five practices crucial for determining UGA depth chart

Georgia coaches are playing it close to the vest when it comes to how their depth chart is shaking out.

Offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said an offensive line rotation has not been decided.

“There’s still five more practices,” Bobo said. “There’s a big practice (Saturday). …I’ll have a better feel probably after Monday’s practice.”

Offensive line coach Will Friend wasn’t ready to name a starting lineup.

“We’re evaluating guys and kind of seeing where guys are at,” Friend said. “We’ll keep doing that week to week.”

The expected starting lineup is left tackle John Theus, left guard Brandon Kublanow, center David Andrews, right guard Greg Pyke and right tackle Kolton Houston.

“I’d really like to go into it that if you’re not getting it done on a Saturday, I’d like to have somebody else that would go in there and do it,” Friend said. “That’s the way life is, right? If you want to get your program and get your position to be the best, you’ve got to make them feel uncomfortable.”

Friend said coaches haven’t decided if freshmen linemen Isaiah Wynn and Dyshon Sims will play.

“They’ve done some good things,” Friend said. “We’ll kind of see what happens.”

As far as the backup quarterback battle between Faton Bauta and Brice Ramsey, Bobo said he’d have a better idea probably after Tuesday’s practice “on what we’ll do if something happens” to starter Hutson Mason.

Bobo said all five available scholarship running backs, including freshmen Sony Michel and Nick Chubb will play at least special teams.

“The game will dictate touches and plays,” Bobo said.
