UGA's Anderson excited about move to nose tackle

By Robert Hydrick - bio | email

ATHENS, GA (WALB) - One strength for the Georgia football this season is an experienced and deep offensive line.


The Bulldogs are so deep on the offensive line they are moving one of their top blockers to defense.

Former Irwin County Indian Justin Anderson has moved to nose tackle in this his junior season.

Anderson, who a great Independence Bowl game at offensive tackle, hasn't played defense since is high school days in Ocilla.

While Georgia has depth on the offensive line, the coaches believe Justin can beef up the defensive front.

That fact Justin says will make the switch difficult.

Another is he missed spring practice due to injury.

Justin believes he can catch up quickly and says he wants to do what he can to help his team win this fall.




Justin Anderson said. "I am trying to help the team any way I can. If they need me to play first, second or third down, I will do it. Just whatever they need me to do I am willing to do."

Georgia will open the season September 4th against Louisiana-Lafayette.
