Freshmen Isaiah McKenzie and Nick Chubb both impressed during Saturday evening’s scrimmage at Sanford Stadium, according to the Athens Banner-Herald.

McKenzie caught two passes, one a bomb from backup quarterback Brice Ramsey and returned a kickoff for a touchdown. McKenzie could be an X-factor for the offense, and assuming Malcolm Mitchell returns from his knee injury, McKenzie and Mitchell in the same offense could be electric. That’s two home run threats for Mike Bobo’s offense.

Head coach Mark Richt later tried to curb expectations.

“Well, it wasn’t live, it was a thud,” Richt told the Banner-Herald.  “It looked like he did.  I’d have to see the film to say he wouldn’t have gotten tackled.”

Chubb, who worked with the first and second units during the scrimmage, carried the ball seven times for 52 yards and had a scrimmage-high 19 yard run.

If you’re looking for two impact freshmen, McKenzie and Chubb could be big-time players.
