Yellow Jackets Prep for Alcorn State

@GeorgiaTechFB Notebook – Monday, August 24 – Practice #22

Georgia Tech entered its last full week before next week’s Thursday Night opener with a two-hour practice Monday on Alexander Rose Bowl Field. Monday’s practice included some work on fourth downs and ended with on 11-on-11 period that focused on two-point conversion plays.

With their two leading wide receivers from last season taken in the NFL Draft, the Yellow Jackets continue to search for answers at that position. Junior WR Micheal Summers is back, while sophomore Ricky Juene and freshman Brad Stewart have been enjoying good camps. In an attempt to strength the competition at that spot, head coach Paul Johnson announced that redshirt freshman DB Jalen Johnson was moved to receiver.

“It’s still a big jumble behind the first three,” said Johnson after Monday’s practice. “We moved Jalen Johnson there to see if he could beat the other guys out. He was a receiver in high school so we’ll give him a chance.”

Tech is back on the practice field Tuesday and Wednesday, and will hold a closed scrimmage Thursday afternoon.
