2. Josh Harvey-Clemons Is A Beast

For those who don’t know the name, you better learn it quick.

Josh Harvey-Clemons is the next great player on Georgia’s defense.

Playing safety this year, Harvey-Clemons has the ability to see the entire field and lay the big hit.

While he'll likely play linebacker eventually, coaches know Harvey-Clemons is too good to sit.

“Right now his body type is more of a safety-type,” head coach Mark Richt said. “We are hoping for him to learn our nickel position, which is a hybrid between a defensive back and an outside linebacker. It’s perfect for him. I think he’s liking the safety right now. It makes sense when we’re in base. But when we spread into three-receiver sets, we really want him to learn to play that nickel.”

Harvey-Clemons has no problem with that.

“Since Day 1 of spring, I’ve just been getting better, learning more and more,” he said. “If I keep working, I’ll really master the position.”

We’ll see how it all goes come Aug. 31 at Clemson.
