Georgia's five-star freshman slated for first career start against Alabama
This is why Trent Thompson came to Georgia, to play in games like this on Saturday afternoon.
First reported by the Albany Herald, the nation’s top-ranked defensive player in the 2015 signing class is scheduled to make his first career start against the Crimson Tide according to a text received by his high school coach Octavia Jones.
Thompson has seven tackles in four games and has impressed defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt as the season’s progressed. His 6-foot-4, 300-pound frame will be vital in the middle against an Alabama running game fueled by Derrick Henry.
