Georgia’s spring practice concluded on Thursday with a session closed to the media, but coach Mark Richt spoke briefly afterward and reiterated that the Bulldogs haven’t decided on a starting quarterback.

A reporter pressed Richt on why Brice Ramsey and Faton Bauta haven’t been allowed to speak with the media during the spring competition and he gave a succinct answer.

“They don’t have an answer for the questions that you have in my opinion,” Richt said. “I want them to focus on trying to get better. When we get a real life pecking order, it’ll be the time to talk. Right now, I don’t want them worrying about media.”

Georgia added a couple new coaches on staff and welcomes back a legitimate Heisman candidate in Nick Chubb. The Bulldogs are seeking their fourth double digit-win season in five years and perhaps the program’s first SEC Championship in a decade.

5. Pick out playmakers at WR aside from Malcolm Mitchell

Addressed?: Yes and no.

Following longtime receivers coach Tony Ball’s departure along with the graduation of two leading targets, The Bulldogs were left with a bunch of unknowns heading into spring practice with Mitchell being the only — reliable — returning weapn.

Junior flanker Reggie Davis along with Isaiah McKenzie, a special teams threat with three return scores last fall as a frehsman, have enjoyed a solid spring. McKenzie is Georgia’s speed threat and caught a 72-yard touchdown from Ramsey on G-Day, but came up limping and exited after pulling his hamstring.

While there’s been promise at the position, including physical senior Justin Scott-Wesley who played in six games last season after missing much of the 2013 campaign, practices have been littered with drops at times.

After shifting duties from running backs to wideouts, assistant coach Bryan McClendon said last week most spots on the depth chart remain up for grabs heading into fall. Five-star Terry Godwin, one of three 2015 signees, arrives this summer to bolster a group that has depth, but is short on experience.

“When it’s all said and done, I’ve got to come up with about seven or eight guys who I think can play winning football,” McClendon said. “Whether they are freshmen or walk-ons or seniors, it’s kind of up to those guys to compete on the field and decide.”

4. Determine roles for Chubb, Marshall and Michel

Addressed?: No, but we have an idea.

Georgia’s bell cow is the gifted sophomore Chubb, but he could use some help and the Bulldogs’ staff is hoping that’s where the often nicked up Marshall and Michel come in. After a solid start, an injured collarbone on March 26 forced Michel to miss the remainder of spring, but he’s expected to make a full recovery.

The prognosis is a bit more difficult to project for Marshall whose been bitten by injuries back-to-back seasons. He returned to practice after missing a few weeks on April 8, but durability remains a concern. When he’s healthy, Marshall’s every bit the five-star talent recruiting services saw in 2012.

It would be foolish to count out Brendan Douglas as well. Rarely talked about as a member of Georgia’s feared backfield, Douglas has played spot-duty as a reserve his first two seasons in Athens. He has however impacted the offense when he’s been on the field.

3. Locate replacements at inside linebacker

Addressed?: Yes.

Losing mulit-year starters Amarlo Herrera and Ramik Wilson is a challenge for any defense, but coordinator Jeremy Pruitt has a stockpile of talent at the inside linebacker spot and flexed some of those options this spring.

You wouldn’t know it based on the pub Leonard Floyd, Jordan Jenkins and Lorenzo Carter have received on the outside.

In recent practices, Georgia’s staff has been impressed with Natrez Patrick’s move to the inside, a transition he originally made during his senior season at the prep level. A natural defensive end-outside linebacker type, Patrick has flourished inside for the Bulldogs since making the switch.

“I’m not going to speak for Jeremy (Pruitt) and coach (Mike) Ekeler as to where he’ll ultimately end up,” Richt said after a recent practice. “I think they like what they’ve seen. I know I like what I’ve seen as an inside linebacker. I think it’s really fitting him well.”

Jake Ganus, a transfer from UAB, has also turned heads, mainly with the second team. Ganus recorded 226 tackles in three seasons for the Blazers and provides depth at the position.

Judging Georgia’s inside linebackers at this point, Tim Kimbrough, Reggie Carter and Patrick — along with Chuks Amaechi — should compete for starting spots this fall. Ganus will get a shot, as will incoming touted freshman Roquan Smith.

2. Install Brian Schottenheimer’s new offense

Addressed?: Yes, but injuries made it quite challenging.

No one said replacing Mike Bobo, the mastermind behind the SEC’s top scoring offense last season, would be easy, but a slew of injuries to expected playmakers have made Schottenheimer’s job that much more challenging thus far.

Not to mention Georgia’s battle for the starting center spot, thought to be Isaiah Wynn at one point, is a bit cloudy after a less-than-promising spring game performance from the sophomore. Bad snaps push an offense out of rhythm and throws Schottenheimer’s tempo off course.

Richt said Thursday in his spring wrap-up the competition is between Brandon Kublanow, Wynn and Hunter Long. If the opener was this week, Richt said Long appears the most ‘game-ready.’

While feeding Chubb is the obvious go-to play this fall, Schottenheimer has tried to give quarterbacks Ramsey and Bauta near equal chances to roll with the 1s and establish relationships and a flow within that group. Tight ends will receive more work in Schottenheimer’s sets too.

Mitchell said after one practice this spring that his new OC’s tempo is faster than his predecessor and that he expects players to learn new installs by the following day. Once a quarterback’s chosen, Georgia’s offense should look more fluid.

1. Find a quarterback

Addressed?: No, but Ramsey and Bauta are clearly the two best options in what was once a three-player race, each capable of performing at a high level it appears.

Ramsey was supposed to be a shoo-in for the starting job after beating out Bauta for the second-team spot behind Hutson Mason last fall. Bauta’s stayed the course however and has vastly improved as a passer, making the decision much more difficult on Schottenheimer, also the team’s quarterbacks coach, coming out of spring.

Richt has appreciated the competitiveness at the position and said “it’s still a race” after Saturday’s spring game. Ramsey worked with the first team during the scrimmage, but only because it was his turn in the rotation according to Richt.

Many believe he’s still the favorite, but Bauta’s continuing to get a shot and Richt has taken notice.

Chubb is keeping his call close to the vest.

“I can work with all of them,” said the potential 1,500-yard rusher. “They all do a great job.”
