Apparently Hardman the wide receiver is a thing now.
The worst kept secret became officially official on Tuesday when Georgia coach Kirby Smart said that, yes, Mecole Hardman, is now a full-time wide receiver.
“I think that’s safe to say,” Smart said. “You guys have finally cracked the egg. Mecole worked over there about 95 percent of the spring. He did a lot of work there. He did double as a DB on some occasions when we were very down on DBs in the spring.”
They have plans for him, too.
“We think Mecole’s biggest attributes will help us in the offensive slot slash return game,” Smart said. “He can do a lot of different things. We’ve got to try find a way to get him the ball, but he’s also got to find a way to protect the ball. That’s going to be a growing curve for him carrying the rock very much that Isaaiah (McKenzie) and Reggie (Davis) went through upon my arrival.”
Oh, great. He’s already lost a year before even getting started on that growing curve. Still, this sounds better than being Tripped.
