WATCH: Zamir White runs through another Georgia linebacker in drill video
ATHENS — Can anyone stop Zamir White one-on-one in the open field?
It’s a fair question to ask after the redshirt freshman blew threw another tackle attempt in a two-on-two- drill that appeared to involved projected starting inside linebacker Tae Crowder and Quay Walker against Eli Wolf and White.
Wolf tied up Walker just long enough for White to run through a strong tackle attempt at the goal line in one of many head-to-head battles captured by Georgia’s award-winning film crew last Saturday.
In Scrimmage One, White ran through a tackle attempt of inside linebacker Channing Tindall.
Teammates Isaiah Wilson and J.R. Reed have raved about White’s fall camp.
“I feel sorry for the guys that have to go against him,” Senior safety J.R. Reed said. “He reminds me of (Nick) Chubb, especially running the ball, how physical he is and downhill … ”
Senior Brian Herrien was the Bulldogs’ most effective runner in short yardage last season and remains among the most trusted.
White’s powerful style, however, raises questions as to who might get short-yardage and goal-line duties in the backfield.
Three were other moments, such as when Kenny McIntosh ran through the tackle attempt of Trezman Marshall and then dragged Nate McBride into the end zone.
For those who enjoy watching the big guys battle, it appears Kirby Smart pitted freshman end Travon Walker (6-5, 290) against massive Xavier Truss (6-7, 330).
Defensive back William Poole was tasked with trying to tackle Tyler Simmons, and then there’s a clip of what appears to be an intense exchange between Malik Herring and Cade Mays.
Freshman Dominick Blaylock had a chance to get his run on, too, running through Lewis Cine on a 2-on-2 drill with George Pickens leading the way on defensive back Christopher Smith.
