5 players to watch in G-Day Georgia game

Georgia's annual spring game – called G-Day – won't be a real game, but it will be a barometer on how some players could reach the regular season.

Fourteen members of the Georgia 2019 signed class will perform their first Saturday of Sanford Stadium and former soldiers such as Jake Fromm, Dundre Swift and Rodrigo Blankenship will also take part in the final spring meeting. But here there are five fans of players there who keep an eye on them during Saturday's game:

Brian Herrien, running back

Herrien will have a great chance to make her sit on Saturday. Having carved a name for himself in the past around limited transport, there is a very good chance that Herrien is the biggest competitor on G-Day. Zamir White, another favorite, will not play in the game as Georgia is attentive. James Cook was not 100 percent because he gets from ankle surgery.

Herrien will have the opportunity to show that the remaining role of Elijah Holyfield can absorb. And if Herrien runs as he did in the Sugar Bowl or against Tennessee last year, he probably earned himself a lot of addresses for Georgia.

Trey Hill, center

Georgia has one vacancy to fill the aggressive line this spring, and Hill seems to be the man who can enter the center. Kirby Smart said that he had the track in his first press conference this spring, and said there was nothing to do that Hill lost the ground.

“Trey is the kind of man walking through and accepting the biggest representatives, and he has already gained some valuable experience,” said Smart.

Hill went to an offense when he filled last year against Kentucky. And he was previously playing with Fromm, as Hill was attending Houston County in high school. Georgia's line of attacks could be the best line in the whole country, and spring performance should not be strong from Hill just by validating that demand further.

Demetris Robertson, a wide receiver

Some receivers across Georgia will have monster performance. It may be junior Matt Landers, who spoke Smart about several times this year. There are also Tyler Simmons and Kearis Jackson. And of course Jeremiah Holloman, who is the only receiver in the world has caught more than 10 tickets last season.

But from a fan perspective, there is no wider receiver who is more interested than Robertson. The former 5 star receiver had huge expectations last year but he has not yet recorded an achievement in Georgia uniform. This should change Saturday. And a great performance on G-Day could be the start of a big season for Robertson.

“I think it's more comfortable with the offense,” said Smart. “He played the F, which he puts in the slot he plays outside, he realizes that he's better and he's getting more opportunities too.” T

Tyson Campbell, defensive back

Saturday will give us an insight into what Georgia's secondary school will look like by Deandre Baker. Georgia has a lot of people with experience in secondary school, but only Campbell can claim that it was a 5 star corner according to the 247Sports Composite ranking.

Campbell soon met in his career in Georgia and eventually focused on Eric Stokes during the Auburn game. But he returned back when he popped into Baker during the Sugar Bowl. Saturday's strong performance would be good with Campbell's chances of starting with Stokes and opening the season against Vanderbilt.

Nolan Smith, external backline

We could not go with some new people in Georgia. It seems that Nakobe Dean was very impressed with the back-lighter. DJ Daniel has done the same thing at the corner site. But Smith seems to be the early enrollee that really stands out in this spring.

“Nolan always works hard,” said Smart. “He doesn't always play smartly but he does a bit of a job and he does a good job.” T

This means that Smith was the overall recruit No. 1 in the country. But Smith was entering a group of loaded sites this spring by an external back-line. And fans should be looking forward to what he can do Saturday because understanding is so strong at Smith.
