Georgia’s young defenders: There are some young guys that got there in January and been through practice and now they’re starters. Again, they are very well-coached and sound, but I also know that you have to worry about the Clemson Tigers. We have to make sure we don’t give them any freebies. That’s one of the biggest things going in this week, next week and the week after is it’s about the Clemson Tigers. We know what kind of opponent we‘re going to get, but we don’t want to give them anything.
Germone Hopper recovered from a lackluster spring and will be counted on now: Coming into fall camp, G-Hop was a guy that really had to step up and prove himself. He had a ho-hum spring and not what anybody wanted him to have. He wasn’t nearly as consistent as we thought. That was my message to him at the end of spring. I guess I was expecting a lot more out of it than you were because he didn’t perform at the level we thought he should…the consistency wasn’t where it should have been.
We shared that with him going into the summer months and he came out and had a really good fall camp. To the point where he’s earned our trust. I don’t think I could have trusted him out of spring. Didn’t really plan for him to be a part of the rotation. He was going to have to earn every rep he got and he did.
Hopper as an ideal ‘2’ receiver ( Sammy Watkins’ current spot): There’s no question. He’s a guy that’s very electric. He’s sudden. His first couple steps are sudden. He’s a great fit for that position and what we do. Now that he’s on board with the plan we’ll see if we can’t keep pushing forward with our plans for him.
Adam Humphries, Mike Williams and T.J. Green in the mix as well: We know what Adam does. He gives us depth all over the field. We know what kind of player he is.
Mike Williams is a guy that continues to impress us. He’s still young, but he’s a guy that is going to get playing time at some point in time this season early on. Great ball skills – still learning to play at the level we need him to play at consistently, but he’s going to be a really good player for us.
T.J. Green is another one. He was slowed by an injury early on in camp, but he’s had a good finish to camp. He’s still a ways away from being a good player for us.
Wayne Gallman likely headed for redshirt: (Redshirt) is the plan going in, but that could change in a hurry. We're extremely excited about Wayne and what he has done in fall camp. He's available...He'll be ready to play, but we'd like to hold him if we possibly could.
Morris is confident in the Tigers' backup QB Cole Stoudt: Not many teams can say their second guy is three years in their system. We are very fortunate to have Cole in that role. He gives us the opportunity to win. There are some things that Tajh does better than Cole and then there are some things that Cole would bring to the table that – hey, we might have to adjust a few things, but we would build on his strengths.
