ATHENS — There are more questions than answers for Georgia football at receiver, starting with who will be the No. 2 receiving option next season.
Everyone knows George Pickens is the No. 1 target, the player in the No. 1 jersey, and he’s likely the No. 1 skill position player.
But the next-best receiving option is very much up in the air.
There was a time many would have expected Tommy Bush, by the start of his third season, could have evolved into the possible No. 2 target and be playing a major role in UGA receiver rotation.
Instead, Bush has just three catches in three games his first two seasons.
The 6-foot-5, 205-pound redshirt sophomore had just one catch last season, a 1-yard grab against Georgia Tech. In 2018, Bush played in only two games, against Austin Peay and UMass.
But former Georgia football star Terrence Edwards believes Bush could be on the verge of a breakout when football season resumes.
“My sleeper WR this season,” Edwards Tweeted out after a Bush workout tape got out.
Kirby Smart said Bush was slowed by a sports hernia last season, and he was most often a spectator at practice.
But the former 4-star prospect out of Texas — who once ran 40 yards in a laser-timed 4.4-seconds — remains on the roster and appears raring to go.
The workout videos that have been coming out show Bush is putting the work in, at the very least.
