Judging from this comment about who will play at offensive left tackle against TCU, Kirby Smart’s done finished with future player development for 2016:
“I think right now we just got Isaiah there because Tyler missed practice back home,” Smart said. “But Tyler’s cleared, and we expect him to play. How we’ll start them, I don’t think we’ve decided yet. We plan to rotate those two guys.”
Smart said it’s not unusual for Wynn to work with the first team at left tackle, which is something he has done throughout the year at practice. Smart noted it would be “a little different” if Wynn starts against the Horned Frogs.
Smart also added that any decision wouldn’t be made with the 2017 season in mind.
“We’re not looking at it from the perspective of next year,” Smart said. “We’re looking at it at now, the best chance to win this game from a health standpoint. He gets those reps all the time. We do it in the game with a change-up from a conditional standpoint.”
