Georgia Football Fall Camp Day 1 Practice Report

Day one of fall camp is finally here and football season can finally begin. Georgia’s first day featured shorts and shirts with helmets.  Despite it being day one of camp, coaches kept the intensity up like it was a game week. Steve Conyers and I each took a side of the ball for day one and below are our takeaways. 

Savannah’s Offense Report:

The offense showed a lot of promise from some new faces today. The wideouts and runningbacks showcased a few notable names. The offensive line worked on a lot of drills and stayed broken up working on drills. I will note that they look to be in great shape. There were no signs of big bellies at least from where we stood. That group seemed to have stayed in the work out room. However, other than that there wasn’t much to note on the offensive line.
Below I break down each position and what I saw.

Justin Fields
Justin Fields
Both Jake Fromm and Justin Fields made great throws today. Both on the money and crisp. I don’t think I saw a wild ball from either of them. They looked happy to be out there playing football and the two seem like they have a good bond.
I will say that WO Mason Wood (4) is pretty dang impressive too. He threw a long ball to Tommy Bush right before we left that was right on the money and beautiful.
Wide Receivers 
First off, Demetris Robertson is a STUD… So fast and quick. He has a great set of hands. Tommy Bush looked impressive as well. He’s that tall WR UGA needs.  He has the potential to be the next game changer for the Bulldogs. One of the only things I notice is that he needs some weight on him because he’s lanky. However, I didn’t see him miss a catch. He runs like a gazelle and just looks smooth when he takes on a route.
Matt Landers has gained some weight and filled out some. He’s another I expect to earn some playing time. He didn’t drop a ball today either. He looks stockier and more comfortable running through the drills.
Running backs
Zamir White as you know is ready. He ran through drills and looked good. White showed no sign of injury and I saw him make a few cuts with ease.
James Cook
James Cook (6) and Jake Fromm (11)
Cook appears small but I think he’s got something to prove. Granted he could use a good year in the strength and nutrition program just to bulk him up. However, he showed some promise during the catch out of the backfield drill. Cook reminds me a lot of what Sony Michel looked like when he first got to Georgia. I’m excited to see what he does this camp and how much he can contribute.

Steve’s Defense Report

Conyers focused on the 2018 recruiting class and what they looked like during the short media period.
Everyone wants to hear about the new recruits so that’s what I’ll keep this focused on. You can really tell Georgia signed the #1 recruiting class from sights alone to the point that is borderline ridiculous. Below I’ll mention each recruit and what I saw from them.
Brenton Cox #1

  • All the talk during the spring was real about Cox. He is nicely built and as athletic as they come. Look for him to make a lot of noise this year and get plenty of playing time.

Tyson Campbell #3

  • All of 6’2 with extreme length and a just picture perfect image of what Kirby wasn’t in his corners. Tucker specifically targeted him out giving him some early tough love.

Jay Hayes (Notre Dame transfer) # 7

  • Graduate transfer Hayes is the thickest lineman on the team and is an absolute grown man. Adds much needed depth to the interior defensive line and will play a vital role this season.

Divaad Wilson #16

  • He is recovering from a knee injury during the spring, but was out there practicing and is another 6’0 corner which is exactly what Kirby is looking for.

Otis Reese #17

  • There was talk about where he would be placed this summer because he’s in kind of a “tweener” but as of right now he was running with Tucker and the safeties.

Quay Walker #25

  • Another physical specimen type guy who passes the “eye test”. It’s going to be really interesting to see what they do at inside linebacker because they have brought in some freaks.

Chris Smith #29

  • He was also working with Tucker and noticed Bacarri Rambo out there coaching them up.

Azeez Ojulari #38

  • Azeez had a knee brace on as he also had a knee injury to end his high school season, but man is he thick. Think he may redshirt, but there are a lot of guys who are going to have to get on the field even if it is just special teams.

Channing Tindall #41

  • Working with Schumann and the linebackers just another fine piece to much needed depth in that group after losing Roquan Smith.

Adam Anderson #56

  • Anderson was working with Tray Scott and the defensive line and is every bit of 6’5. The pass rush in Athens these next few years is going to be something serious.

Jordan Davis #9

Jordan Davis
Jordan Davis
  • The tallest player on the defensive line just a massive man. Athletic, but looks like the one thing he was struggling to do was getting low while hitting the sled. Once he gets his technique down he will be a force to be reckoned with.
