ATHENS -- As inside linebacker Tim Kimbrough continues to nurse a knee injury, senior transfer Jake Ganus has seen an increase of practice reps with the first team.
Ganus said the added work has helped him prepare for the upcoming season, considering the talent level of offensive linemen he’s having to shed blocks from.
“For me going against the one offensive line has been huge,” Ganus said. “Going against Greg Pyke, (Brandon) Kublanow, Kolton (Houston), John (Theus) and Isaiah (Wynn), all those guys, they get you so much better. You’ve got to go against them every rep. You have to work hard to get off blocks. Every day I get better and better.”
Ganus transferred to Georgia during the spring from UAB, after his former program shut down football. UAB later reversed its decision but won’t resume playing football until 2017.
Although Ganus has seen an increase in reps with the first tam, he understands the importance of Georgia getting its starter back on the field.
“We want to get Tim back as fast as we can; he’s a great football player, an awesome guy,” Ganus said.
