JT Daniels details championship aspirations at Georgia, discusses injuries in WR corps
JT Daniels is preparing for a big year at Georgia. The Bulldogs once again have high hopes that they can compete for SEC and national titles.
Daniels will be expected to be a star, and he has some talent around him on offense to work with.
After Tuesday’s practice, Daniels met with the media, weighing in on the loss of top receiver George Pickens, but saying he’s confident the team has plenty of talent to move forward (via DawgNation.com):
“Obviously, losing George (Pickens) doesn’t help you, losing an elite top receiver, but it’s a great team,” said Daniels, who went 4-0 at the end of last season. “I think Coach Smart has done a great job of instilling a team standard and team DNA that a lot of guys have taken to.”
Some other receivers have suffered injuries this spring at Georgia, but Daniels is also confident that younger guys can step up:
“We have a loaded receiver room, it’s great to see some of the young guys, J-Rob (Justin Robinson), Jermaine (Burton) before the little knee thing, D-Rob (Demetris Robertson) has been stepping up, and Kearis (Jackson) is always Kearis.
“You have a lot of guys that are going to work their butts off to develop and produce any way they can.”
We’ll see how Georgia’s offense looks when the Bulldogs take the field for the spring game on Saturday, April 17. Daniels might not play too much, but it’ll be interesting to see what sort of performance he has.
