UGA freshman will get look in August

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  The post spring depth chart for the Georgia football team could change significantly before the Bulldogs first game against Boise State.

 The post spring depth chart does not include most of the 2011 recruiting class known as the "Dream Team".

They will begin arriving in Athens this summer.

Freshmen like Isaiah Crowell, Ray Drew, Malcolm Mitchell and others expected to get plenty of reps during preseason practice.

The coaching staff may need several of these true freshmen to contribute in either a starting or backup role.

Head coach Mark Richt said. "we tell all the guys we sign to get in shape and get prepared to compete. Get prepared to compete to play. Win a starting job. We are not even looking forward for them to fill in. We are looking for them to push our starters and try to beat them out." 

Freshman quarterback Christian LeMay and receiver Chris Conley enrolled early and participated in spring practice.
