- Will Jackson has replaced Nick McRae as the starting left guard. I suspected this battle would end up like this & I'm pleased Jackson has asserted himself.
- Freshman who will play: Isaiah Johnson (who will start), Jeremiah Attaochu (#2 Will LB), BJ Bostic (special teams & specific packages), and Louis Young (#2 CB behind Mario Butler). The staff may choose to play safety Fred Holton on special teams because of his never ending desire to destroy people & small villages on kick coverage. Justin Moore looks to be handling kick-offs.
- Rod Sweeting continues to push Dominique Reese at CB.
- freshman NT Shawn Green is getting in better shape & has flashed some in practice & the scrimmage. CB Ryan Ayers & QB Synjyn Days continue to impress. Both will redshirt but the staff remains very positive about them
- At this point, no one has been ruled out against South Carolina State due to injuries. Fantastic news!
We have greatly enjoyed Paul Myerberg's superb "countdown to football" blog Pre-Snap Read this summer. You can't help but be impressed by the research Myerberg does on each team & the depth to which he profiles them. We're very happy to note that today, Tech comes in at #11 in the countdown of all 120 FBS teams. We're also very happy that we were mentioned as a place where "Georgia Tech fans congregate." We appreciate the love & the great blog, Mr. Myerberg. The check is in the mail........
