During a quarterback competition, it can sometimes feel like there are too many cooks in the kitchen. That may be how Brock Vandagriff is feeling about the battle going on down in Athens based on his latest comments.
Vandagriff spoke about Georgia’s QB competition following their G-Day Spring Game this weekend. He was asked if he needed to hear anything from the coaches to definitely come back to Georgia in the fall. At this moment, Vandagriff says he doesn’t know what his future holds besides prayer on the matter and a desire to take it one day at a time.
Vandagriff is giving all that he can in the race alongside Carson Beck as well as Gunner Stockton. Still, this weekend seemed to end up as another feather in Beck’s cap as the apparent leader for the gig. In the spring game, Vandgriff completed 13/25 passes for 175 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. Beck, though, tossed for 231 yards and a touchdown as he went 18/22.
Vandagriff was the highest-rated of all the Georgia quarterbacks in On3’s Industry Rankings. He was ranked as a five-star prospect in the 2021 class as a Top-25 player overall and a Top-5 quarterback. The long story short is that, if he elected to move on from Athens, he would have his fair share of suitors.
Still, there’s no guarantee of that at the moment as he may wish to still stick around and compete for the job at his home state’s school. If nothing else, it just sounds as though all options are on the table for Vandagriff as we move out of the spring practice period.
Smart excited by what he’s seen from Georgia this spring
Kirby Smart is feeling the good vibes following Georgia’s spring game over the weekend.
As the Bulldogs begin their quest for a three-peat, Smart’s team isn’t letting all their success go to their head. Speaking with the media on Saturday, the Georgia leader explained why he’s enthusiastic regarding the Bulldogs’ performance over the last month.
“I’m excited. I’ve always said, you know we’re built to sustain here, and that’s my motto,” started Smart. “We’re not trying to be a one-hit wonder. We put a really good football team out there each year, and we’re well on our way to doing that this time. We’ve probably got the most cohesive unit we’ve had, in terms of the guys love being with each other, they like practicing hard. I mean, we had 14 of the 15 days, I really thought we had good practices. That includes today.
“I was really pleased with their work ethic. So they like practicing. They like football. When people come to your practices and they visited seven other schools and they say, ‘Man, y’all get after it. Man, your guys are hard. Man, your guys buy in and have fun.’ It makes me feel better that our kids enjoy it.”
