“I held my own with them.”

Newest Dawg Jake Ganus has a little experience playing SEC offenses.

Ganus has already shown what he can do against SEC teams.

Playing safety as a freshman, Ganus picked off a pass against South Carolina’s Connor Shaw. Going up against Arkansas’ mammoth offensive line this season, the 6-foot-2, 225-pound Ganus had 11 tackles and two tackles for loss including a sack.

Of course, that’s not exactly the same as facing off against the same eight weeks out of the regular season.  But he sounds like he’s up for it.

“It will be different playing teams like that every week, but I will also have a full offseason and summer and fall camp to get ready for it. I definitely think I’ll be up for the challenge.”

I don’t know why, but I actually feel like Pruitt will have capable options to fill the ILB slots next season.  Between the new arrivals and the two backups who’ve been waiting their turns, don’t think there will be much of a drop off from two of the most productive players Georgia’s had on defense the past couple of seasons.

    Kimbrough had a great year covering kicks…think he’s got good things ahead.

    Assuming he’s still here too, right?

    Seems like a guy that has a lot of heart…good quality to have at ILB. Hope he does really well and gets a sack or two against alabama to pay them back.

    Here we go with the “white defensive player’s got heart” comments. Maybe we can pick up one of their white “possession” receivers!

  6. Like the idea of his versatility having played safety. One of the few weaknesses Herrera and Wilson had was in pass coverage. His experience as a safety can at least make him a 3rd down specialist for the ILB position.
