True Freshmen On First Team

Make of it what you will, but there were some new faces in the lineup when Georgia’s No. 1 offense took the field for the first play of Monday afternoon’s full-squad scrimmage, the first of the preseason.

Three true freshmen started: Richard Samuel at tailback, A.J. Green at split end and Cordy Glenn at right guard.

Green’s presence is somewhat of a surprise since the Bulldogs five players ahead of him at split end before he arrived this summer. Freshman Tavarres King (ankle) and Walter Hill (broken hand) are out with injuries and junior Kris Durham was on the field at the same time for the opening play.

As for Samuel, starting tailback Knowshon Moreno remained in a green, non-contact jersey for the full-contact game simulation. So, for now, it appears to distinguish Samuel as the No. 2 tailback.

Glenn, from Riverdale, was starting ahead of redshirt freshmen Justin Anderson and Tanner Strickland. Strickland worked at center and true freshman Ben Jones at right guard with the No. 2 unit in pre-scrimmage warm-ups.
