Georgia football Practice No. 6 observations: Assessing backup QB competition

ATHENS — The Georgia football practice field was surrounded by coaches, prospects and for a few period media members, with Kirby Smart the ringleader of the event.

The Bulldogs went through Practice No. 6 on an unseasonably warm (78 degrees) spring day, working their way toward the annual G-Day Game on April 20.

Georgia made four players available to the media: Offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson, cornerback Eric Stokes, linebacker Tae Crowder and quarterback Stetson Bennett.

The players were enthusiastic and information, leaving no doubt that Georgia has a healthy, yet competitive, locker room this offseason.

The Bulldogs have an interesting competition for the No. 2 quarterback position behind third-year starter Jake Fromm.
