ATHENS — The most interesting thing about Tuesday’s practice wasn’t a Georgia player on the field, but a prospective player who was watching.
Breiden Fehoko, a defensive lineman who is transferring from Texas Tech, was at Georgia’s spring practice on Thursday along with three family members.
Fehoko, who must sit out the upcoming season, would have two years of eligibility remaining. He’s visited other SEC schools, including Auburn and LSU. He was watching the defensive lineman during the media viewing period of Thursday’s practice.
Fehoko is set to make his decision next week, according to 247Sports.com. He started 25 games at Texas Tech.
Other notes from the media viewing:
- Freshman defensive back Deangelo Gibbs appeared to injure his shoulder. He left with trainers to receive treatment. (UPDATE: Head coach Kirby Smart did not have an update on Gibbs after practice, other than to say he wasn’t happy that the media reported the injury, causing Gibbs’ mother to call and ask what happened. There has been no policy prohibiting the media from reporting injuries they see during practice, but Smart indicated he would re-accomodate the media.)
- Senior safety Dominick Sanders was not present. Sanders hurt his knee in last Saturday’s scrimmage but was present at Tuesday’s practice.
- Sophomore receiver Riley Ridley (foot) was running deep routes during drills, though is still wearing a black non-contact jersey.
- Sophomore Mecole Hardman continues to wear an offensive jersey and work with the receivers.
- Smart continues to be hands-on, literally, as he was throwing passes to receivers during a short passing drill. A few moments later Smart sprinted to the other side of the field, where he worked with the defensive backs.
