Freshman defensive tackle Trenton Thompson was announced as a starter for Georgia's game against Alabama.
If Thompson does in fact earn the start, it will the first of his career. Thompson was seen lining up with the first-team defense during pre-game warmups. Thompson came to Georgia as a five-star recruit out of Albany's Westover High School.
For the season, Thompson has seven tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss and a half of a sack. He was announced as a starter over John Atkins.
In addition, outside linebacker Davin Bellamy (concussion) and defensive back Rico McGraw (knee) are dressed out for this game. Fullback Christian Payne (cracked fibula) and linebacker Reggie Carter (shoulder) were ruled out earlier this week by head coach Mark Richt.
