Quick — besides Isaiah Wilson, can you name Georgia’s other seven redshirts from the 2017 class?

Netori stands out. I thought he would get a look at NG during the spring, given the lack of depth there versus the overflow at OG. But I guess not.
Its fairly common for DL’s to make the switch to OL for depth or other reasons. Its very rare for it to happen the other way around. Most OL’s aren’t athletic or quick enough to play DL, otherwise they already would have been playing DL.
It’s been a rough year for [Tray] Bishop. First, it was an ankle injury that slowed his progress for much of the year, followed by his arrest in May on a felony charge of eavesdropping/surveillance.
Does anybody know what this is about?
Nevermind. Should have googled it in the first place.
If Matt Landers learned enough from Javon Wims, he will get a lot of playing time this season.
The cool thing about the new redshirt rule is that they should all have some real-game, real-speed experience under their belt moving forward. Imagine how it would have been if the players on this list could have played in up to four games last year, even in spare relief. Could have helped us a lot at several junctures, I’m sure.
So about 1/3 of that great class redshirted. Our depth is scary. I haven’t checked but does anyone know how many of the 2018 will probably redshirt?
