The statistics from the scrimmage showed why Hutson Mason continues to be ahead of redshirt freshman Christian LeMay as the No. 2 quarterback even though Georgia would like to redshirt Mason
Mason completed 9 of 13 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown. LeMay was 3 of 6 for 44 yards and an interception.
“If something happened today, Hutson is No. 2,” coach Mark Richt said. “It could change throughout camp, but Hutson just has a tremendous feel for what he’s doing and has got another year under his belt compared to LeMay. LeMay’s getting there. He’s made some good progress.”
Richt said an injury to Murray could still prompt Georgia to play Mason even in the sixth game of the season.
“The best one’s going to play,” Richt said. “Right now, Hutson is ahead of LeMay.”
Said safety Shawn Williams: “With Hutson, we feel like he’s kind of up there with Murray. He can throw good balls. He was making us be on our job. You can’t be lacking coming in out of breaks because he’s going to have the ball on our target.”
