Jackets developing depth at quarterback

By Robert Hydrick - bio | email

MACON, GA (WALB) - When coach Paul Johnson arrived at Georgia Tech, his first task was to find a quarterback to run his option attack.

Rising junior Josh Nesbitt proved to be a quick learner.

Nesbitt won the starting job and proved to be a quick learner with over 1500 yards of total offense.

Nesbitt is not the only quarterback the Jackets have to run the option.

Sophomore Jaybo Shaw made his first start in a win against Duke and redshirt freshman Tevin Washington is ready to add his name to the depth chart this fall.

Johnson says all three quarterbacks are getting better and that makes the coach feel better to have more than one quarterback to run his offense.

Paul Johnson said. "Josh had a great spring. I think he probably improved as much as anybody out there. Jaybo Shaw had a good spring. Tevin Washington another young man who redshirted a year ago did some things. He had a really good spring and at times played well in the spring. So, we have got a little more depth there than we did in the past."

Georgia Tech opens the season at home September 5th against Jacksonville State.
