Richt: Don't "Go Too Crazy" on Depth Chart

ATHENS - A day after the release of Georgia’s depth chart made waves when All-SEC inside linebacker Ramik Wilson was listed as a second-teamer, Amarlo Herrera was succinct when asked if too much is made of what’s on paper.

"Yeah,” he said.

Coach Mark Richt basically said the same thing Tuesday.

“This depth chart, I wouldn't go too crazy about it right now to be honest with you,” Richt said. “I don't even know if it's worth writing anything right now."

Richt said coaches from both offense and defense were to meet Tuesday night to further nail down spots.

“Guess we’ll have to wait to see Saturday,” Herrera said. “Nothing is finalized until the first play of the game Saturday.”

Sophomore Tim Kimbrough is listed ahead of Wilson to start alongside Herrera.

“He’s a hard-hitter,” Herrera said. “He’s going to play hard, he’s going to give you all he’s got while he’s out there.”

Richt said at least five freshmen are expected to play in the opener against Clemson Saturday: outside linebacker Lorenzo Carter, tailbacks Sony Michel and Nick Chubb, tight end Jeb Blazevich and receiver/returner Isaiah McKenzie.

“I don't know about the offensive linemen (Isaiah) Wynn and (Dyshon) Sims but they're in the two-deep and it's possible that they could play,” Richt said.

Kevin Sherrer, Carter’s position coach, said the Norcross product “makes you look like a good coach. With the tools he has, he’s just going to get better as he understands our scheme and how we expect him to play.”
