Something weird is going on with the post-spring practice weights.
Of Georgia’s 71 returning contributors and early enrolling freshmen listed below, only 22 were listed as having gained weight from the 2013 pre-spring roster to the post-spring roster.
A total of 44 players were listed as having lost weight, with some members of the offensive line recording the biggest drops in recent months.
How big? Pretty freakin’ big:
OL John Theus — 298 — (-11)
OL Watts Dantzler — 307 — (-13)
OL Zach DeBell — 273 — (-20)
OL Xzavier Ward — 278 — (-21)
OL Austin Long — 287 — (-37)
Now maybe this is about remaking bodies based on some new S&C philosophy and maybe we’ll see much of the lost weight regained by August. At least I hope so, because I don’t think any team is going to survive life in the SEC with a right tackle whose weight is south of 280.
On the other hand, Gurley at 232 has the potential to be one scary dude.
