ATHENS — The Shaquery Wilson-to-tailback experiment may have ended.
Wilson, the sophomore who switched to tailback in the spring, was back at receiver during Monday’s media viewing period. He had been with the tailbacks the first two weeks of preseason camp, after moving there late in spring practice.
Wilson played in two games last year at receiver, not making a catch. After moving to tailback in April, he earned good reviews, gaining 24 yards and one touchdown on nine carries in the G-Day game.
However, with Georgia’s tailback depth making a comeback, the move back to receiver is hardly a surprise.
Georgia not only has a healthy Nick Chubb, and a healthier Sony Michel, but added freshmen Elijah Holyfield and Brian Herrien. There is also experienced senior Brendan Douglas and redshirt freshman Tae Crowder.
The receivers, meanwhile, were down to nine players who were recruited to campus on scholarship. Wilson’s return to that group would make it 10.
