In a game that featured two delays because of lightning and was finally shortened because of it later on in the second half, the highly touted 5-star prospect of the recruiting class of 2015 made his debut for the Dawgs. For the day, Godwin had 3 receptions for 30 yards with a long of 20; which, when you consider Georgia only passed the ball 14 times, he received almost 25% of the targets. Godwin had good moments, but he also had a couple of “freshman” moments.

He stated he came in on the second play of the first offensive series for the Dawgs. When asked if he replaced Isaiah Mckenzie, he responded:

Yes. It was a different formation.
[su_spacer size=”20″] “Terry are you happy?”
[su_spacer size=”20″] “You look happy.”

We really wanted to go back out there and play again just to finish out the game and work on things we need to work on.
