Looks like Sam Pittman’s made the first of several executive decisions this month:
Pyke, the senior who moved to that spot in the spring, will remain there as Georgia returns to practice on Monday, head coach Kirby Smart confirmed.
But the left side of the offensive line will see some experimentation.
Isaiah Wynn will play left tackle about 60 pecent of the time, and 40 percent at left guard. When Wynn moves to left guard, sophomore Kendall Baker and graduate transfer Tyler Catalina will see snaps at left tackle.
Dyshon Sims and Lamont Gaillard will begin as the guards, Smart said.
Pyke moved to right tackle before spring practice and stayed there most of the time, on the first team. He started at right guard as a sophomore and junior.
“We don’t expect to move him back to guard right now, because we we feel we have more guards than tackles right now,” Smart said.
Obviously, with that “right now” qualifier, they’re leaving themselves room to maneuver — largely, I suspect, out of a desire to see how Catalina shapes up as an option to start at tackle. In any event, there appear to be plenty of questions left to answer over the next four weeks.
