ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia broke camp Wednesday without many answers on its offensive line. Classes start Thursday for University of Georgia students, ending the Bulldogs' preseason schedule of two-a-day practices.
Saturday begins the two-week countdown to the Bulldogs' September 1st opener against Oklahoma State, and still coach Mark Richt can't say who will start on the line or even what positions potential starters will play. Richt and offensive line coach Stacy Searels are still evaluating freshmen, redshirt freshmen and transfers on the line.
Richt said freshman Clint Boling and senior Chester Adams could play guard or tackle. If Adams, currently the starting right tackle, moves to right guard, Scott Haverkamp might move from right guard to left guard. Richt said he'd like to know his starting five by Saturday and said it has to be done within a week.
Injuries may have delayed the decision process. Haverkamp and Adams returned from ankle injuries today. Richt moved redshirt freshman Kiante Tripp from defensive end to right tackle yesterday. A decision on Adams could lead to other starters being named. Adams could move to right guard, where he started last season, if the coaches believe Boling and Tripp are ready to play at right tackle.
