G-Day rosters

ATHENS - The rosters for Georgia's spring game have been provided to the media, so now it's time to look too much into them. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

- Brice Ramsey is the quarterback for the first-team, which is the Red team. Faton Bauta and Jacob Park, as well as walk-on Sam Vaughn, are the listed quarterbacks for the Black team.

This is noteworthy, of course, because I'm noting it. But the quarterbacks typically switch teams on a regular basis in this game, and that's expected to happen again today.

- Isaiah Wynn is the center for the Red team (first team), with Hunter Long the center on the Black team. That's the way it went for the first two scrimmages as well. Again, they may switch teams on occasion, but Wynn does appear to have a lead on Long for the starting job.

- One other offensive line note: Kendall Baker, who had a good spring and was the favorite to be the top backup at tackle, is out for the game with an unknown injury.

- No other major surprises on offense. Jeb Blazevich and Jay Rome are both at tight end for the Red team, an indication that the team feels it has two first-team worthy tight ends. Quayvon Hicks is the fullback. Nick Chubb is the tailback, along with Brendan Douglas. The receiers are Malcolm Mitchell, Reggie Davis, Isaiah McKenzie and Charlie Hegedus.

- Tailback Keith Marshall is NOT playing today, despite being listed on the depth chart with the Black team, along with A.J. Turman. Sony Michel, on the other hand, is listed among the injured players. But Marshall is out of uniform for warmups, as is Michel.

- The defensive also doesn't have any major surprises. Jake Ganus is with the second-team defense (which is on the Red team), with Reggie Carter and Tim Kimbrough at inside linebacker for the first team. Ganus has had a strong spring, as has Natrez Patrick, but Carter and Kimbrough are the veterans and apparently still have an edge. It seems a very close competition.

- The first team secondary: Malkom Parrish and Aaron Davis at cornerback, Dominick Sanders and Quincy Mauger at safety, with Reggie Wilkerson listed as a backup to Sanders at free safety. However, Wilkerson may be the first-teamer at the star position, which doesn't have an official listed spot on this depth chart, but you would expect Jeremy Pruitt to line up with the 4-2-5.

- In general, there appears to be a lot of seniority when it comes to this depth chart, which may not carry into the actual season. The first-team defensive line, for instance, includes Sterling Bailey (who probably will start), along with John Atkins and Josh Dawson, each of whom will get a push from youngsters, including Jonathan Ledbetter, who is on the second-team.

- Chris Mayes is with the second-team at nose tackle, which is a bit noteworthy.

- The injured list: Michel, receiver Blake Tibbs, receiver Ben Southern, receiver Shakenneth Williams, fullback Cameron Faulkner, inside linebacker Tommy Long, tackle Kendall Baker, linebackers Leonard Floyd, Davin Bellamy and Ryne Rankin, cornerbacks Shattle Fenteng and Kennar Daniels-Johnson, and defensive end Michael Barnett.
