Redshirted freshman Tramel Terry was working with the UGA safeties for the second day in a row on Tuesday afternoon. During the short time the media was allowed to view, the secondary and safeties were working on breaking a block and the pursuit of the ball carrier, in addition to hitting the tackling dummy.
Terry made headlines yesterday when he was seen working out with the safeties for the first time all season, after being recruited as a wide receiver and working out with them the entire season, as he continues to rehab the torn ACL he suffered almost a year ago during a South Carolina High School All-Star Game.


Here some some Photos of Terry working at his “new” position, captured by Bulldawg Illustrated at today’s practice.

Terry looked gritty out there this afternoon, and received praise from his coaches and fellow teammates when he drove one played into the ground during the drill.

Coach Richt will not be available for comment until after Wednesday’s practice, where we will certainly try and dig deeper into the apparent position change.

Stay tuned to Bulldawg Illustrated for the latest…

Also, we only have Corey Moore,Quincy Muager,Tray Matthews, and JHC as the safeties next season. Depth is much needed there

I could see him getting some snaps in the spring. With Fluker transferring, and a bevy of receivers either coming back from injury (MM,JSW), returning seniors(Conley,Bennett) , and newcomers(Rumph,Tibbs,Davis) being on the roster, it's best to get him looks where he has the best chance of getting on the field. RB is stacked with Heisman hopeful Gurley, Marshall and a slew of talented backs, it's hard to get him in that rotation as well.

Don't see how this could work out at all.  Tramel seems like a super talented guy with the ball in his hands; tackling, angles, and coverage are a totally different game.  The problem with our D isn't that we don't have enough athletes... it's that we're not tackling and covering well.  So why not let Tramel get some practices under his belt at WR?  I don't understand.

Just speculation on my part but it could have to do with the scarcity of safeties, the abundance of WR's and the fact that given his size - if he makes it at safety - he is far more likely to have a pro career.

I seriously doubt he starts, but it would be a good time to let him test the waters. Except that mat burn a redshirt year, so at this point it wouldn't be worth it.

Good idea to prep him for a pro career. Isn't that what college is about. I know we and the players both want wins but if they arent getting paid to play, then lets keep their best interest in mind.
