Georgia defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt hasn‚Äôt allowed much wiggle room for mistakes in the secondary, outside linebacker Jordan Jenkins said.
‚ÄúI‚Äôve seen people get fired for messing up two or three plays in a row,‚Äù Jenkins said. ‚ÄúI remember Pruitt yelling, ‚ÄòAll, right, you‚Äôre fired. Somebody else get him off the field.‚Äô That‚Äôs how quick it is with the DBs. You mess up a couple of plays, you‚Äôre out. He told Corey (Moore) one day, ‚ÄòYou‚Äôre fired. Get off the field.‚Äô He doesn‚Äôt mean it all the time. It‚Äôs definitely funny watching them in practice getting subbed in and out.‚Äù
Pruitt, who coaches the defensive backs, treats returning starters the same as walk-ons who have never taken a snap.
Even before spring practice.
Walk-on cornerback Aaron Davis said Pruitt held one-on-one meetings with every player to get to know each individually.
‚ÄúIt felt good,‚Äù Davis said. ‚ÄúIt was like everybody got an equal opportunity, an equal time to meet him.‚Äù
