… Freshman John Theus from Jacksonville, Fla., could do what Cordy Glenn, Ben Jones, Trinton Sturdivant and Clint Boling did in their first seasons on campus: start.
“We’re not afraid to start a true freshman lineman,” Richt said. “I would say John Theus in high school was probably farther advanced than any of those guys. Ben Jones was pretty salty coming out of the box. He’ll have a chance to win a starting position. More than likely it will be at tackle. We’ll wait and see what he does.”
Go ahead and pencil him in at left tackle. And keep your fingers crossed a little for Aaron Murray’s blind side.
