ATHENS — One of Georgia’s position switches from last week is sticking. The other two may also, but it’s not decided yet.
Redshirt freshman Tae Trowder, who moved from tailback to inside linebacker, will remain there, head coach Kirby Smart said on Monday.
“Tae will stay there. Tae has just got great size and he’s a good athlete,” Smart said. “So he’s going to continue to work there, and whether or not we can factor him in this year, that depends on how fast he learns.”
“We think he has great size, and is a great athlete,” Smart said. “Whether he (plays) there this season depends on how he develops.”
Meanwhile, sophomore Michael Barnett and junior Shakenneth Williams may or may not stick at their new positions. Barrnett switched from defensive end to offensive tackle last week, and Williams switched from receiver to defensive back. Smart was noncommital whether that would continue.
“We’re still making a decision on the other two. Tae is the only one that we know for sure on,” Smart said. “Barnett may or may not. Just depends on our depth on the D line.”
Barnett and Williams, neither having taken a redshirt year yet, would be eligible to take one this year if they never seen the field. Crowder redshirted last year as a freshman.
