Georgia’s starting left tackle Isaiah Wynn has had a great college career at UGA, and he only has one game remaining in red and black before he’s off to the NFL.
Fortunately for Georgia, Wynn is the only offensive lineman who is 100% out the door, though starting center Lamont Gaillard has not stated whether or not he’ll enter the NFL Draft.
So when Wynn does depart, who will take his spot at the crucial left tackle position?
According to offensive line coach Sam Pittman, there’s no question. Wynn’s replacement will be Andrew Thomas, who, as a freshman, has started every game at right tackle this season and has done a nice job.
Following Monday night’s game, Pittman’s plan is to move Thomas from right to left tackle.
“I think we’re going to move [Thomas] over to the left side as soon as this game’s over,” Pittman said.
With Thomas switching to the left side, that leaves an opening at right tackle. Pittman hinted that the vacant spot on the line will likely be filled by Isaiah Wilson – a former 5-star offensive tackle who redshirted this season – or incoming 5-star tackle Cade Mays.
“He had a good redshirt year. And of course we recruited Cade Mays for a reason,” Pittman said. “It’ll be a healthy competition over there.”
Don’t expect Ben Cleveland to do any shifting in the offseason. Cleveland has started the past three games at right guard and it does not look like he’s going anywhere.
Said Pittman, “He’s a guard. I think we’ll keep him there,”
