Georgia's QB Situation (including walk-ons) vs. Past Years Under Richt

The talk of the Bulldog Nation in the past 24 hours has revolved around the possibility of quarterback Logan Gray transferring. So if Gray did decide to transfer, how would Georgia's current QB group look? Everyone knows Aaron Murray is the current #1 on the depth chart, and most everyone knows about Lassiter High School recruit Hutson Mason who will be joining the Dawgs in Athens soon. But few know that there are also two walk-ons that will be joining the team this fall.

Redshirt Freshman Aaron Murray (4 star on Rivals and #3 QB)
Freshman Hutson Mason (3 star on Rivals)
Freshman Greg Bingham out of Columbus High School (2 stars on Rivals)
Freshman Parker Welch out of Wayne County High School (2 stars on Scout.com)

That leaves the 2010 class with four QBs, all "freshman" who have never taken a snap at the college level, and only two scholarship players. Things look a lot better if we can keep the more experienced Redshirt Junior Logan Gray on board.

Curious to see how thin (and young) this QB class is (or would be without Gray) compared to past years?

IF Gray decided to transfer, Georgia would have by far the youngest QB group of the Mark Richt era, and the thinnest (with only four QBs, and only two scholarship players).


  1. I know it's not rocket science but have the coaches ever looked at the JUCO ranks for a good backup??

  2. Careful Anon, There is no reason to get riled up and ask them to earn their over paid salaries. Shockley and Stafford are the only two quarterbacks so far that Richt selected who amounted to anything. The odds are agianst us.
