After day three of fall camp, veteran receiver Javon Wims praised the new freshmen in the wide-out group. As one of the leaders, Wims mention that the young guys are coming along and learning quickly. 
The senior gave the new wide-outs praise for their efforts and hanging in with the older receivers. Throughout practice, Wims encouraged and praised Matt Landers and Mark Webb Jr., and he gave them a few pointers while running a drill. When asked about the group as a whole, Wims didn’t hesitate to brag on them just a little.

“All the young guys look good,” Wims noted. “They are coming in, working hard, and competing their butts off. I just like the way they are working, and they are taking constructive criticism. They are learning each day and getting better each day.”

He mentioned that being a SEC receiver requires preparing and playing at a whole other level. Wims said since arriving at the University of Georgia he has went through the process and learned from the leaders, the seniors that came before him. He noted that it takes a time to adjust and learn the coaches style, want they want, but to always grind and work for it. Now, one of those seniors and leaders on the Bulldogs, he gave the young guys a piece of advice.

“I just let them know that it’s going to be a process,” Wims notes. “They’re used to being the man at their school, but they have to come in and learn a whole new system. They got to learn to play at a division one level, a SEC level. So it’s going to be a process and it’s not going to come over night, but they need to stick with it and keep grinding. Then everything will work for you.”
