Jahmile Addae, Georgia football get big boost with the addition of Tykee Smith

There is not a position coach on Georgia’s staff that faces a bigger challenge this spring than new defensive backs coach Jahmile Addae.

In addition to becoming familiar with the Georgia way after arriving from West Virginia in Jananruuy, Addae faces a major overhaul in the secondary, as Georgia must replace Richard LeCounte, Mark Webb, Eric Stokes, Tyson Campbell and DJ Daniel.

The Bulldogs are extremely young in the secondary, with only safety Lewis Cine having more than six career starts in the positional group

When speaking following the first spring scrimmage on Saturday, Kirby Smart did not mince words about where the group was.

“We’re a long way from being ready in terms of what we need to do in the secondary because we’ve just got a lot of inexperienced players,” Smart said. “We can not have enough of those situations, scrimmages, passing, all the different looks we get because we need experience.”
